How to Teach Respectful & Responsible Choices to Young People & Handle Undesired Behavior with Calmness & Confidence hosted by Boys & Girls Clubs of the Fox Valley.
Facilitated by MICHAEL BRANDWEIN.
After rave reviews for his 2018 parent & caregiver workshop on communicating with young people, we are excited to have Michael return with a new program packed with skills that you can use right away to build great relationships while handling the challenges of parenting. Why is it that our kids listen to us sometimes, but sometimes don’t? How do we get past, “Show some respect!” to really teach great behavior and the kind of respectful and responsible choices that will help prepare our young people for success in life? This entertaining and practical session will show you how. Michael doesn’t teach “theory.” An internationally acclaimed expert on youth development, he demonstrates exactly what to say and do to handle conflict and problems in positive ways. As always, you will leave with a great toolbox of techniques that will make a real difference!
