HOW TO TALK SO KIDS WHO ARE 'WIRED DIFFERENTLY' WILL LISTEN 

Sun., May 15, 10 to 4:30 pm, Children's Nurturing Project, Fairfield.  Online registration available here.  The fee for this workshop is subsidized by CNP, but early registration is required.

A workshop for parents and professionals who live or work with children with autism spectrum or sensory processing disorders or other developmental differences.

Do you have a child who is especially sensitive, stubborn, or strong-willed? Has your child been diagnosed with an autism spectrum or sensory processing disorder? If you've never taken a workshop because your child is not "typical," this workshop is for you!  Come learn how to use the skills of the "How to Talk" workshops with your special child.

HOW TO TALK SO T(W)EENS WILL LISTEN
Part One, Sunday Intensive:

Not currently scheduled.
Are you getting worn down by food fights, bedtime challenges, morning-rush madness, homework meltdowns, dawdling, whining, or other typical t(w)een behavior?
Do you find yourself using threats, bribes or a raised voice, though you swore you never would?
Are you wondering how to raising your children to become respectful, ethical adults, and still keep your sanity?

Come learn a proven approach to enhance cooperation and good will, strengthen character and self-esteem, and build respectful, compassionate relationships.

How To Talk is a program for parents and caregivers of children ages two to teens, based on the best-selling books by Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish. The Talking 101 (Part One) workshop will cover the first three of the six topics in the How To Talk series: Helping Children Deal with their Feelings, Engaging Cooperation, and Alternatives to Punishment. The Advanced Talk (Part Two) workshop will cover the remaining topics: Encouraging Autonomy, Praise and Self-Esteem, and Freeing Children from Playing Roles. Each week you will leave the session with practical strategies that you can implement immediately to improve communication and discipline and enhance your relationships at home.

Are you getting worn down by your children's fighting or complaining, comparisons or competition, or other child-like behavior?
Do you find yourself using threats, bribes or a raised voice, though you swore you never would?
Are you committed to raising your children to become respectful, ethical adults, but wondering how to manage it all and keep your own sanity?
Have you never signed up for a How To Talk workshop because you can't commit to a multi-week series, or evening workshops don't fit with your schedule?
 
Come learn a proven approach to enhance cooperation and good will, strengthen character and self-esteem, and build respectful, compassionate relationships. In a supportive environment, you will reflect on your goals and values, practice specific skills in role-plays and exercises, and learn how to communicate clearly and consistently with your children in the face of normal, everyday challenges. You will leave with practical strategies that you can implement immediately to improve communication and discipline and enhance your relationships at home.

REFRESHER AND REUNION WORKSHOPS for workshop graduates

For those with preschool and elementary-age children:
Tues., July 19, 6:45 -8:45 PM
Private home, Brisbane
 
For those with tweens and teens:
Fri., July 15, 9:30 to 11:30 AM
Private home, Tiburon
 
Could you use some strategies for the new situations and challenges that have come up since you last took a workshop?
Are you finding it hard to remember the skills you learned when you're in the heat of the moment?
 

Many workshop graduates say they wish there were a way to follow up after the workshop has ended.  Now there is!  The Refresher and Reunion workshops are open to graduates of any one or more workshops by Julie King.  We will address your issues and challenges from home (or the park, or school, or...). The group serves as a place to refresh yourself and further explore the skills and philosophy we have studied, as well as a place to get inspiration and concrete ideas for specific situations.
