    Spectrum School – register at Pearkes Recreation Center

    This course provides parents with insight into who their child is and how they need to be parented rather than going with a cookie cutter method.  It starts off with a two hour presentation on temperament.  Week by week valuable subjects will be covered to help parents come to a better understanding of how to deal with difficult behaviors.  As the course progresses it will help parents create a personal vision of effective discipline and how to guide their children to become responsible, caring people.  Supported by the LIFE team, you are sure to finish this course having fewer power struggles with your children and more harmony in your home.  

    LIFE with a Teenager  (2 classes) Fall 2011

    At some point we get fired as the general manager of our children and that usually happens in the teen years. If we can keep our connection strong there is a good chance that we will get hired back on as a consultant. How do we deal with the new meaning of the word trust? What do consequences look like when our kids are taller than us? How can we maintain personal dignity while being dismissed as somebody who knows nothing? Boundaries, resolving conflict and self-care are the primary focus of this workshop.

    LIFE with a Preschooler (2 classes)  Fall 2011

    Preschoolers present some bewildering behavoirs in both parent and child! Who prepared you for this experience and how many people do you think are sitting in the sidelines judging your parenting skills?  Our children’s temperaments are on high gear during the preschool years and understanding their behavior is the most important part of parenting at this time.  This workshop will focus on behavior, expectations and strategies to deal with daily issues such as; mealtime, bedtime and getting out of the house in one piece.
