What You Can Expect
Session #1: Teaching Kids to Listen and Follow Instructions
Parents often become frustrated because their kids don’t listen. In this session we take apart the instruction process and point out ve steps for children ages 2 to 18. Parents learn how to teach cooperation and responsibility in this practical session.
Session #2: Correction Ideas that Touch the Heart
The goal of discipline is a changed heart. This session gives parents
several hands-on tools to use when children need to be corrected. A change of heart is de ned in practical terms and parents go away with a plan to use seven categories of consequences to motivate heart change in their kids. The underlying principle taught is that behavior modi cation is not enough. Parents must keep an eye on the heart.
Session #3: Ending Discipline Times with Impact
Parents often don’t know how to end discipline in a constructive way. This session explains a routine for helping children process correction and learn from the experience. Teaching children about repentance and forgiveness are heart gifts discussed here. This tool is especially helpful for children who blame others or have a victim mentality.
