CT - Fairfield County Chapter

Event: From Yelling to Calm

November 8, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Parents want to raise good humans who can thrive at home, at school, and in life. As we raise children for a new world, we must move from “surviving” based interactions to “thriving” dynamics. Families must take a HUGE leap in their emotional evolution! This talk supplies adults with mindset shifts and communication strategies to be used when handling children’s social, emotional, and behavioral challenges- in and out of the home. Let’s equip our families with the invincible mindset, unshakable sense of self, and unbreakable sense of connection we need to navigate everyday challenges in a calm and effective way. Your family can finally end the cycle of yelling, frustration, fights, and disconnection. Imagine your child growing up in an emotionally healthy home and you feeling good and proud of your parenting at the end of each day.
This talk will help you learn the secrets to:
Helping your family keep it cool even under the most stressful parenting moments.
Skillfully navigating crying, tantrums, power struggles, and fights.
Being able to smartly make a pause and control yourself before you are really angry so you’re not so reactive.
Create more of a mentorship relationship where the kids want to hear you.
