The six week course takes place in the private studio of Dr. Allison Rees. Here she will spend time with a smaller group than the evening classes allowing her to coach parents into the material.
Sidestepping the Power Struggle is a practical, hands on course for parents and professionals interacting with children. It explains why kids of all ages, act the way they do, and gives you tools to work with your own children and their unique temperaments. You’ll learn why power struggles take place, how to teach responsibility as well as surrendering “kid issues” to the kids. Stop fighting needless battles while still keeping the framework of limits clear and “not up for grabs.”
Here are some of the topics discussed in this course:
- Understanding Your Kids – All About Temperament, Ages and Stages From Tots to Teens, The Push and Pull Toward Independence, What is Normal?
- Effective Discipline – Raising a Thinking Child, How to Make Limits Stick, Jumping Out of the Guilt/Anger Cycle, Handing Over Responsibility.
- Everyday Challenges – Bedtime, Mealtime, Homework, Siblings, Aggression and more.
