So let's get real for a second. Every school morning you wake up hoping "this is going to be a good day." Your morning is wrecked when your kid wakes up and doesn't want to go to school. These are the mornings you fear. Parents of school refusal kids know what I am talking about. Your day depends on how your kid wakes up. If your kid is good, you're good. If your kid is bad, you're stuck. What do you do? Do you try forcing your kid in the car, take away his/her iPad "forever," go to work and leave him/her at home..... School Refusal parents, you need help!
In this four week class, we help you step back, determine the reasons for your child's school refusal behaviors, and develop a step-by-step parenting plan to encourage your child to stay in school all day, everyday.
How does your school manage school refusal students? Are you concerned without specific school refusal interventions, your students will continue to fall behind? With an estimated 28% of American students demonstrating school refusal behaviors, over one quarter of your students are academically, socially, and emotionally losing out. Join us for this seven-week course as we discuss the assessment, the four reasons for school refusal behavior, and a step-by-step protocol for you to implement in your school.
Meltdowns is less about your child and more how you respond to your child. This class will help you not be afraid of saying the wrong thing or becoming frustrated and responding with anger. Instead of becoming emotionally reactive, this class will teach you how to remain calm and consistent during conflict. Modeling these parenting skills, you will help your child begin to think, feel, and act differently in distressing situations. You will feel better about being a parent, while allowing your child to better self regulate negative emotions. With the right approach you can have a loving relationship and help your child become a independent, caring and capable young adult.
Do you find your child being negative? Quick to give up? Shy away from challenges? You can help your child develop a growth mindset, a can-do attitude and help your child understand that they have the capacity to learn anything. In this class you will learn all about learning and why we often choose comfort over growth. Learn how to help your child beat the resistance and thrive in school and discover how to navigate and feel their way through struggles and failures.
Ever wish you could "Kiss and Go" when dropping your child off at school, saying your "good night," when saying "go on, get out there" at the soccer, baseball, or football field? If your child has trouble separating from you at school, bedtime, social activities, or any other situation, you should definately spend the next 4 weeks with us learning ways to have your child separate from you rather than pushing your child off you and running ;) During this class, we will discuss the Cognitive Behavioral basics of Separation Anxiety and a Behavioral Modification plan to help your child become more confident and independent of you.
