The Hopewell Valley Education Found (HVEF), along with the Hopewell Valley Regional School District and the Hopewell Valley Municipal Alliance, will be hosting a free parenting workshop entitled, “Parent Power: Effective Discipline Strategies for Children and Teens.”
Tuesday, March 24, 10am-12pm at Hopewell Valley Central High School, Room 116
Tuesday, March 31, 7pm-9pm at Hopewell Valley Central High School Performing Arts Center
The presentations, with 30 minutes of question and answer time at the end of each, will be facilitated by Robin M. Kevles-Necowitz, M.Ed., LPC., a licensed professional counselor and parenting coach who has been in private practice working with adults, couples and families for over 25 years. Kevles-Necowitz is also the author of Go Take a Bath!: A Powerful Self-Care Approach to Extraordinary Parenting and will be signing her books, available for purchase at the workshop sessions.
Realistic expectations, mutual respect, encouragement, communication skills – these form a framework for building cooperation and responsibility in children of all ages. Within this framework we will discuss positive and effective methods of discipline. Effective discipline helps children learn how to cooperate with others. Ultimately our goal is to teach our children how to manage their own behavior WITHOUT our intervention. In this workshop we will discuss specific ways to accomplish this goal. This will be a FUN, interactive parenting seminar that will address your most burning parenting questions:
- How do I effectively discipline my child without yelling or upset?
- How do I teach my child to respect me without using fear tactics?
- How do I set the stage to raise a child who thinks independently, feels self-confident and has self-control?
