Howard County Office of Children’s Services Offers ‘Conscious Discipline’ Workshops for Parents of Young Children

"The Family Institute will present two workshops for parents and guardians raising young children. Conscious Discipline is applicable to all ages, including adults, but the workshops mostly focus on age 2 through 12 years.

Fusses and Fits:
   In the busy shuffle of day to day life, children’s meltdowns can get in the way. There has to be a better way to survive these daily schedule-stopping battles. Learn how to reduce stress by addressing a child’s emotional state before addressing behavior. Build your knowledge of child development principles which have a dramatic impact on the discipline process. Learn and practice the 3-step process which links emotions, thoughts and actions.
Monday, October 27th from 6:30-8:30 at 3300 North Ridge Rd #240 Ellicott City, MD 21043. Cost: $8

Setting Limits Without Guilt:
   There are many different parenting styles. Some may be too firm and some may be too lenient. What is the right balance and how do you keep your relationship intact with your child while making sure they do the right thing? Create stronger adult-child connections to support emotional/mental health while learning: brain-body-heart connections which relate to emotional growth, the chemical basis for how and why to shift from relying on fear to relying on love in discipline, and strategies to use when life does not go as we planned or expected. See how this shift creates stronger adult-child connections, which supports emotional/mental health.  This 2 Part Series is held on Monday, Dec 1st and Monday Dec 8th from 6:30-8:30pm at 3300 North Ridge Rd #240, Ellicott City MD 21043. Cost $15
