Get Out of the Nag, Yell, Punish Cycle
Good discipline doesn’t mean an endless parade of nagging, scolding, time-outs, or punishments. Instead, it emphasizes preventing misbehavior in the first place, confronting promptly when misbehavior occurs, then guiding the child or teen toward improved self-control in the future. This cutting-edge webinar shows how to identify what needs the child is trying to fulfill by misbehaving, and how to foster pro-social meeting of those needs to replace the misbehavior. It also helps you prevent future misbehavior by establishing a more encouraging, safe emotional environment at home.
Your child or teen will respond better to your discipline and leadership, because you will strengthen the bond of love and mutual respect. Be prepared to take plenty of notes. You can even ask questions of Dr. Taylor. This webinar is intended to improve the atmosphere in your family and your comfort with this aspect of your role as a parent. Based on his decades of family therapy practice, Dr. John Taylor will show you how to step out of the nag-yell-punish cycle once and for all.
In this live interactive webinar you will learn how to:
- Show your child productive alternatives to misbehavior
- Correct your child without criticizing
- Wisely employ consequences that restore family harmony
- Use conscience-building confrontation of your child
- Get improved cooperation with chores and routines
- …and much, much more.
