Help! My Child is Having a Temper Tantrum

What will help you manage the ‘big emotions?’

Does saying: “Sit on this step!” “Go to your room!” “Calm down!” help?

What can you do to get your child to stop being so angry? What helps when your child has a temper tantrum? Do time-outs work? Why or why not?

This class will explain what happens when your child has a ‘big emotion.’

Parents can have ‘big emotions,’ too.

What will help to de-escalate these ‘big emotions?’

This class will present Positive Discipline tools and phrases that will help with those ‘big emotions.’ You will learn why toddlers and preschoolers have so many temper tantrums. 

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.

We will meet on Zoom. This is a convenient way to meet. There is no commute, and you may not need a baby-sitter.

This class will provide a safe, supportive, non-judgmental environment where you can ask questions and get answers in real-time as we go through the class content. This is a LIVE program; it is not recorded. There are lots of wonderful articles available online; however, it is just not the same as participating in a LIVE discussion.

The class will be facilitated by Jennifer Watanabe, a long-time parent educator and parent coach. She teaches/coaches in a respectful, non-judgmental, and encouraging way. 

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

The class registration fee is $20.

Teaching and coaching are not therapy. Therapy TREATS emotional wounds and can be a much-needed family resource. Teaching presents new information. Coaching acknowledges the past, and then CREATES a plan with the parent for the future.
