Are you tired of battling with your child? Do you wish you knew how to get your child
cooperating without yelling and threats? Are you trying to find the sweet spot between spoiling
and strict? Dr. Laura Markham gives you practical everyday strategies to help you raise a child
who WANTS to cooperate, by working with your child rather than trying to manipulate or control.
No parent is peaceful all the time, but it's completely possible to create a more peaceful home
where affection, connection and humor help you resolve conflict happily, and where kids WANT to
follow your lead.
In this talk with Dr. Laura Markham, you'll have a chance to ask questions about your own
parenting, and you'll learn:
· Why children misbehave -- and how to help them WANT to cooperate without yelling,
threats, bribes or consequences
· What research shows about how children develop self-discipline
· The 4 power tools you can use to connect with children and help them with their emotions
· Why yelling and timeouts actually cause more misbehavior
· How you can create the relationship you want with your child
