  • Marquardt Administration Center 1860 Glen Ellyn Road Glendale Heights, IL, 60139 United States (map)

Presented by Laura Kastner, Ph.D. hosted by the Glenbard Parent Series.

After the baby years, parenting can really get complicated. Discipline becomes an important aspect of parenting, because children need to learn to cooperate with routines, rules and reasonable behavioral expectati ons. Balancing this agenda with the all-important goal of maintaining a loving, reliable and affectionate bond can be challenging when it feels like kids are pushing limits almost all the time.

This presentation will review the evidence base for utilizing positive discipline strategies, while also promoting the tenets of mindful parenting and importance of understanding your child’s developmental stage and temperament. Furthermore, parents will be encouraged to trust their instincts and prioritize self-care. Free event.
