Join us to ponder the questions: What is the role of punishment? Is time-out a punishment or a consequence? and, What is the difference between punishment and consequences....Or is there a difference? If you have decided NOT to spank, coerce, or punish your children and are left saying, "Now what?" - or if punishing your kids isn't working and just doesn't feel right - this workshop is for you. Sarah and Katherine will offer a fresh perspective, the latest brain science, and new skills and tools to help you foster a connection-based approach for guiding your children. (10/08)
