No More Yelling: Calm Clear Talk to Help Guide Children’s Behavior
Presented by Rachel Rennie Klingelhofer
Monday, November 16, 10-11 am on Zoom
We often find ourselves saying the same things to our kids over and over, and finally yelling. Instead, let’s try talking in ways that are more effective and only need to be said once. Using these practices will help our kids know what is expected, feel competent, and minimize conflict.
