    Description: Parenting with Positive Discipline 3-Night Mini-Series on Parenting Styles and Inviting Cooperation

    Theme: Parenting Styles and Inviting Cooperation

    Wouldn't it be nice if, every now and then, your child would just do what you asked . . . the first time?

    Did you just sigh, longingly? 

    In this 3-week Parenting with Positive Discipline mini-series, you will experience how different parenting styles can either help or hinder cooperation, as well as learn and practice some amazingly effective and easy ways to encourage cooperation and self-discipline in your kids. Topics include setting limits that stick, routines, how to invite rather than demand cooperation, and family meetings. 

    Participants say, "Simple and profound!" and "I got tangible tools and saw immediate impact!"

    This is a 3-week mini-series running three consecutive Tuesdays starting June 16, 2015.

    Cost: Early Bird (register by May 20) $125/person; $105/2nd caregiver; $110/person for groups 4+ (must register together.)

    After May 21: $135/person; $115/2nd caregiver; $120/person for groups of 4+ (must register together.)
