How to Talk So Kids Will Listen

Are you caring for a child between the ages of 2 and 12 who just won’t listen? Do you wish that you could manage their behaviour better without losing your cool?

This workshop will give you the understanding and skills you need to get through to your kid, help them behave, and resolve family conflict peacefully without yelling and resentment.

Workshop Topics:

  • Expressing your anger without being hurtful
  • Coping with a child’s negative feelings, frustration, or disappointment
  • Determining and using alternatives to traditional punishment
  • Engaging a child’s cooperation
  • Identifying problem behaviours

What is the program like?

You’ll be working with the workshop host and other parents to learn, share resources, and work through exercises to build a mental toolbox of solutions.

Marlene Taylor, MPS,
I am the Education and Training Coordinator at MHA. I teach numerous parenting classes on special topics which help parents and caregivers to better understand and manage behavior challenges for children and teenagers. I also coordinate staff trainings that range from community programs and resources to special topics such as Trauma Informed Care and Narcan training. I love teaching and having the opportunity to bring inspiring and enlightening information to the community and staff. I truly believe information is power.
