We highly recommend this workshop to all parents, especially those parents new to BVMS. It will give you the opportunity to see the philosophy teachers use each day with your child while giving you new skills to use at home.
Here's What Will Be Covered in the Workshop Sessions:
- Helping Children Deal with their Feelings:
Exploration of what happens to children when their feelings are denied. Specific skills that help children to recognize and cope with their negative feelings. Ways to accept children's feelings, limit unacceptable behavior, and still maintain goodwill.
- Engaging Cooperation:
How children react to commonly used methods to get them to cooperate. Five ways to invite cooperation that will leave parents and children feeling good about themselves and each other.
- Alternatives to Punishment:
How do children react to punishment? Alternatives to punishment that enable parents to express their strong disapproval as well as encourage children to assume responsibility for their behavior.
- Encouraging Autonomy:
Ways to help children become separate, responsible people who can one day function on their own. Skills to help children rely upon themselves.
An exploration of the kinds of praise that build a positive and realistic self image and the kinds that do not.
- Freeing Children from Playing Roles / Final Review:
How we can free children from playing out roles that they have been cast into. Applying all the skills learned in previous sessions to current problems with our children.
