FREE INFO NIGHT with Dr. Lapointe: DISCIPLINE WITHOUT DAMAGE
April 24, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
DISCIPLINE WITHOUT DAMAGE: How to get your kids to behave without messing them up
Presenter: Dr. Vanessa Lapointe
When your child is threatening a meltdown in the grocery aisle, is it really possible to keep your cool, get the behaviour turned around, and support healthy development, all at the same time?!
Parents, caregivers, and big people of all kinds will discover how discipline affects children’s development, why our reactions to our children’s behaviour should reinforce connection instead of introduce more upset, and why the disciplinary strategies that may have been used on us as children are not the ones that children really need.
In addition, you’ll learn: How the concept of “childhood” has been understood in different ways historically and why we must understand it anew today.
The basic and impactful truth behind Dr. Vanessa Lapointe’s mantra “See it, feel it, be it.”
The foundation of a healthy, effective approach to discipline that respects your child’s developmental needs… and works!
Target Audience: Parents of children ages 5 to 17 , School Staff, and Community members
North Delta Secondary School
7:00pm to 8:30
REGISTRATION IS NOT NECESSARY
