From Self-Critical to Self-Confident: Raising "I Can" Kids | August 20, 2024

Live Webinar August 20, 2024 from 8-9pm ET

Parents, are you searching for ways to empower your children with a positive ‘can-do’ attitude? Do your children fear making mistakes, criticize themselves, or struggle with motivation when facing a challenge? This state of discouragement often leads to nagging, conflict, and feeling helpless by everyone in the family.

Turn the Discouragement cycle into Encouragement. Discover simple tools to infuse the parent-child relationship with the ‘I Can Quotient,’ a useful measure of a child's ability to thrive in life developed by psychotherapists Betty Lou Bettner and Amy Lew.

Learn strategies to increase your child’s:

  • sense of feeling connected, capable, competent, and courageous
  • ability to flex their ‘can-do’ muscles
  • self-confidence to face challenges more independently

Registration includes access to the live webinar, video/audio recordings, a PDF of the slide deck and links to resources.

Lisa DiSciullo
Lisa is a lifelong educator and trainer in many capacities:from computer, communication, and relationship skills in Fortune 500 companies, to respectful ways for parents to teach and support their children.

She discovered PEP when one of her 3 children was struggling in school. After getting guidance from a counselor on how to help her child, she asked “That’s great, now what can you do for ME, because I feel like a failure as a parent, all I ever do is yell at my kids, if we continue this way not only will I fail, but my children will fail too!”

PEP provided skills, support, and practice for Lisa's family. She is passionate about helping parents guide their children to be capable, positive, independent and courageous.

"My husband and I really enjoyed the webinar. we have some practical strategies that we can start to implement right away."
