Parenting your Preschooler: An Intro to Positive Discipline
Tuesday April 17th at 7pm
You do so much for your kids.
Come do something for yourself.
Hint: it has something to do with your kids…!
It doesn’t have to be difficult.
And you don’t have to do it alone.
Are you engaged in a power struggles with your children?
Are mealtime and bedtime troublesome?
Do your children have difficulty getting out the door to school in the morning?
Are tantrums bringing you down?
Or are you simply looking to raise a grounded, capable child?
Come learn how Positive Discipline can help solve everyday challenges and bring some harmony to your family relationships.
Mary Lynn Fiske is a Positive Discipline Parent and a Positive Discipline Classroom Educator. She is the mother of two children.
The preschool years are a good time to put first things first: each other and your children.
Positive Discipline classes provide parents with non-punitive methods to encourage and empower children, and to help them develop important life skills.
