In this monthly Parenting Education & Support event, parents will learn:

The Four Pillars of Positive Parenting

  • Collaboration. The difference between permissive, authoritarian, and collaborative parenting.
  • Calmness. How constructive communication ceases when the stress response (flight, flight, or freeze) gets triggered in parents and children.
  • Preserving. How to preserve a warm, close relationship with your child while also maintaining your authority.
  • Self-Care/Support. The importance of taking care of yourself.

Appropriate for parents of elementary ages through high school.

Parents of neuro-typical kids get too much credit, and parents of children with behavioral challenges get too much blame. Let’s change this and all support and encourage one another in the parenting journey. -M. Mader
