OVERVIEW

There is little doubt that your children will grow up to become caring, contributing adults because you are their most influential models for adult behavior. However, these long-term goals can seem pretty out of reach, given the day-to-day stressors and struggles of living and learning with children. From simple tasks like picking up toys to complex values like compassion for others, good kid behavior makes everything about parenting more exciting and enjoyable. In this presentation, the familiar principles and procedures of behavior and learning will be applied to the special case of training we call parenting. Topics will include the ABCs of behavior, alternatives to punishment, the intrinsic vs. extrinsic reinforcer debate, why giving children the right kind of control matters, and how to stay in the role of mentor and ally.
