Parent University ~ Session #1

Thursday, September 26, 2019 ~ 8:20 AM

The topic for this session is Behavior Management and Positive Discipline.

Workshop participants will learn behavioral developmental norms of elementary aged children and strategies to help your child be successful. During this workshop we will review best practices of behavior management and will discuss related topics such as:

  • Modeling
  • Diversion
  • Intrinsic motivation
  • Extrinsic motivation (awards, consequences)
  • Verbal and non-verbal communication
  • Developing a family plan

We will talk about practical applications and everyday activities you can do with your child to help develop personal management techniques and regulation strategies.

West Creek Academy is committed to communicating the school’s vision to work together with parents to guide your children’s health and learning. We created our Parent University to provide a variety of parent-only sessions that offer parenting support, increase communication with parents, support learning at home, and encourage parents to be part of collaborating with the school and the community. We hope to address some of the common challenges we all face as we navigate the elementary years and beyond.
