We’ll be announcing a series of online classes and interactive Q&A sessions soon, but in the meantime, please check out our previous radio workshops!
Victoria Hodson: What About Our Schools?
Remember when you were a kid and adults kept telling you what to do and how to behave? How did it feel to be in school and told you have to do something or else you’d be disciplined? Is this effective for raising smart, creative thinkers? Is there any other way to raise kids, or would moving away from traditional punishment-based incentives spoil children? We’re going to tussle with these tough questions and more at a LIVE interactive chat with educator and psychologist Victoria Hodson!
Director Ana Joanes asks what the benefits are of moving from a consequence-based approach to a more democratic system in our schools. How would this cultural shift affect our children, now and as adults?
Bonnie Harris: When Your Kids Push Your Buttons
Wish you could respond to your child’s behavior the way you want rather then react in the way you swore you never would? Hint: It’s not about changing your child. Simply put, it is a change in perception that allows parents to understand where their children are coming from and what their behavior means instead of simply reacting to it with yelling, threatening, rewarding, or punishing. Letting go of old habits is the hard part. We fear losing authority and giving in to children’s demands. But many of our old habits undermine our authority and leave us fluctuating between autocratic and permissive styles. Tune in to a conversation between Director Ana Joanes and Bonnie Harris, M.S.Ed. the director of Connective Parenting.
