Developing behavior modification techniques using Applied Behavior Analysis which is designed to address and correct children’s specific issues. This helps navigate problems such as: children not following directions, sibling fighting, managing homework, bath time, meal times, bedtime, potty training, etc. Independent life skills (such as getting dressed, eating, bathroom skills) and discrete trial techniques for children with special needs.
By learning appropriate interventions that are balanced between firmness and gentle guidance you can feel like a confident parent, this will improve your consistency in discipline. Our goal is to create a safe and secure home that fosters self-esteem in children and confidence in parenting by providing discipline and behavior modification strategies which are best for parents, children, and families.
Topics that are likely to be taught: how to talk to your child at an appropriate level for his age; when it is best to not talk to your child but only use non-verbal communication to change a behavior, using positive reinforcement before punishment (this protects self esteem, builds a healthy relationship and teaches children healthy communication styles to use in life); how to teach a child coping skills when dealing with grief, anger, frustration, etc.
Remember! What you teach a child now greatly impacts how your child will feel about himself as an adult as well as the type of relationships he or she will seek in friendship and committed partnerships. Feel confident that your parenting helps your child reach his or her full potential!
