Self-awareness and self-acceptance are the foundations of your child’s social life, but parents often struggle to strengthen these capacities in children.

During this live, online class you will gain practical skills that will help your child to:

  • Build strong, healthy, lasting relationships
  • Become more aware of himself and his surroundings
  • Accept herself and accept those around her exactly as they are

Presenter: Aaron Weintraub, MS

Peace at Home Parenting guidance does not stop when this class is over. After class, you will be invited to join our private Facebook group. There, you will have unlimited access to our team of parenting experts, who will share tips and answer parents’ questions. This Facebook community is also a place to connect with other caring parents, like you. We welcome parents to share challenges and celebrate successes. 

In addition, you will receive access to free monthly “Question and Answer” sessions. During these sessions, you will be coached in applying the skills you learned in Peace at Home classes and again you will connect with other parents working to improve skills.

Recently, we received this message from a parent:
“I have an only child that is almost 5 years old and is very entitled. He throws temper tantrums and pushes his limits to the VERY end. He listens well to everyone except his father and me. Any ideas?”

 

“Entitled” children expect to “get their way” – that is to get what they want, when they want it, at least a good portion of the time.

Unfortunately, your natural instinct to give in to stop the upset tends to backfire. Even if you only reward those emotional displays from time to time, that will keep them going and may lead to more intense behavior.

Are you ever overwhelmed by your child’s challenging behaviors?
Do you struggle to stay calm as your child escalates?
