Creating Harmony in Family Life 7

Happy Family Hugging Each OtherNo Tantrums – No Yelling – No Video Addiction

As parents, we want what is best for our children.  Creating an atmosphere of respect and kindness in the family is not so easy.  The hectic school and work week plus balancing the needs of children and adults require an understanding and support that cannot be gleaned from reading books alone.  Even the most loving, skilled, and informed parent can feel overwhelmed and lost in how to support their child and balance the needs of everyone in the family.  Helath Psychology Sacramento’s Parent Supprt Group is experly guided by Kelly Pemberton*, school psychologist.  She provides the support, information and resources you have been looking for.

Next meeting: Wednesday, March 30th, 2016 from 3:30 – 5 pm

Theme: Attending to the Positive

– Getting More of the Behaviors You Want to See

Key Concepts and Strategies for this Wednesday’s Meeting:

  • “Shine the light on what’s right”
  • Ž What you attend to, is what you will get more of
  • Neurons that fire together, wire together
  • Positive Descriptive Acknowledgement “PDA” (Teaching Pyramid)
    • What TO DO, not what not to do
    • Reinforcing social emotional learning through narrating (feelings, positive behaviors)
  • Learning how to praise and acknowledge.  Intrinsic vs Extrinsic validation.  What do you as parent really want.
