The Good News About Bad Behavior: A Workshop for Parents
Tuesday, April 2, 2019
6:30 - 8:00 p.m.
Phillips Academy, Andover, MA
A powerful workshop about helping children thrive and succeed with Katherine Reynolds Lewis.
In this workshop, Katherine Reynolds Lewis will share her new book’s findings about the rising incidence of behavioral and mood disorders—such as ADHD, anxiety and depression— and explain how successful discipline practices teach children the art of self-control.
Lewis spent five years investigating a crisis of self-regulation in modern children: observing families at the dinner table, meeting educators who are transforming the school experience for kids with attention and mood disorders and studying the latest scientific research.
In this interactive workshop, she will share encouraging ideas for easing the biggest pain points parents experience, without resorting to punishments or rewards.
Parents will learn creative ways to end battles over mornings, homework, chores, sibling fights, mealtimes, bedtime, screen time, and kids' lack of motivation, respect or cooperation.
This workshop is complimentary.
