My Child is Melting Down: What Do I Do Now?

For Parents of children ages 2-12

Parents work hard at parenting; we see it every day at PEP. They seek to understand their child’s needs, give them a voice, and establish positive ways to collaborate. In the heat of the moment when emotions are flaring, however, parents wonder how to respond with positive, encouraging tools. What do you do when your child is misbehaving and you feel disrespected, helpless, angry, or pressed for time?

Join us for a conversation featuring three case studies of “in the moment” parenting struggles. We’ll walk through each scenario to present PEP parenting strategies to add to your toolbox.

In this webinar you’ll learn how to:

  • ride the wave of an emotional meltdown
  • handle persistent requests and stalling tactics
  • deal with a child's frustration when things don't go their way
  • respond to hurtful, defiant behavior

Your enrollment includes access to the video recording, an audio version that you can listen to podcast-style, and handouts.
