Becoming a Friend, Being a Friend

Being a friend pix 1

How can you support your child’s friendship development? At home and at school?

What is your definition of a friend? What is your child’s?

What is the difference between being a friend and being friendly?

How can you help your child manage conflict when things don’t go as planned?

For some children it is easy to be a friend and to have a friend. For some children it is not so easy to do either one.

This talk will focus on how a young child develops relationships with other children and how you can support your child and these new relationships.

This class will present Positive Discipline tools and phrases that will lead to finding solutions to parenting problems.

Positive Discipline offers a WIN-WIN approach that makes for more effective parenting and more cooperative children. You will feel calmer and more confident during those difficult moments. This class will help you make your family life better.

Recommended resource for the class: Positive Discipline Workbook – either hard copy or e-version

The registration fee is $20 per family. This talk will be held on Zoom. There will be Q&A.

This talk will be presented by Jennifer Watanabe, a long-time teacher, consultant and parent coach. She retired from Bellevue College in Washington state after 24 years of teaching parenting classes. She is a certified:

  • Parent Coach since 2007
  • Positive Discipline Educator since 2011

Teaching, coaching, and consulting are not therapy. Therapy TREATS emotional wounds and can be a much-needed family resource. Teaching presents new information. Consulting and coaching acknowledge the past. Parents can CREATE a plan for moving forward.
