Brief Session Description

Experiencing consequences is a key part of the learning process when children make mistakes or exhibit inappropriate behavior. Used ineffectively, consequences rarely foster permanent behavior change or teach children what to do differently. The result is a recycling of challenging behavior and frustration for everyone involved. This session will focus on using principles of positive discipline and emotional intelligence to better understand the complexity of behavior and social learning. We will build a better understanding of consequences and how to use them as teaching tools to effectively and appropriately help children learn new skills.
