What does anger have to do with brain development? This workshop will take on the task of helping caregivers understand the NEEDS of children when anger erupts. We will explore the emotional pathways that lead to angry explosions and we will seek to understand how to respond in ways that calm rather than agitate, helping to facilitate growth for the developing brain.

    FULL - Discipline Without Damage

    • Time:
      6:30-8:30 pm

    • Location:
      Child Care Options, #100-6846 King George Blvd Surrey

    • Workshop Description:
      Often times as parents and/or caregivers, we are left wondering what exactly our response should be when our children present with challenging behaviours. Our task in answering that query is made even more difficult by the mountains of parenting literature encouraging us to use one strategy or another, with each successive strategy seemingly at odds with the one before. This workshop is designed to help parents and/or caregivers navigate the world of discipline. We will explore how our relationship with our children is at the core of both how we discipline them and the behaviours they present with. That is, our relationship with our children creates an incredibly important “context.” Our goal in this workshop is to understand how our discipline style and related strategies can ameliorate behavioral challenges by allowing for a relational context that is nurturing in nature, and that ultimately encourages the emotional health and well-being of our children.

    FULL - Who's in Charge? Alpha Kids and How to Reclaim the Lead

    • Time:
      9:30 am - 3:30 pm

    • Location:
      Child Care Options, #100-6846 King George Blvd Surrey

    • Workshop Description:
      There is a growing problem among our children that makes taking care of them challenging. The issue is dominance - when children think it is their job to call the shots and tell adults what to do and how to take care of them. Children who have risen to this alpha position can be full of resistance and opposition for those who try and lead them. They can be easily frustrated and filled with anxiety. They steadfastly see themselves as the boss and don’t understand when others try and tell them what to do as if they were in charge. The issue at hand for is not one of strength as it is often misperceived, but of desperation. There is much we can do to restore our rightful place in their lives and have them rest in our care.

    Resilience in Children

    • Time:
      6:30-8:30 pm

    • Location:
      Child Care Options, #100-6846 King George Blvd Surrey

    • Workshop Description:
      Resilience helps us recover from negative events or feelings, cope with challenges and adversity and look for
      ourselves when things are not going well. It is not possible to protect children from the ups and downs of life.
      Raising resilient children, however, is possible and can provide them with the tools they can use to respond to the challenges of life. Parents have the biggest role to play in helping their children to develop resilience. However,
      research tells us that among the most influential positive models in the lives of resilient children, outside the family circle are educators.
      This presentation is designed for early childhood educators and child care providers. Providing the support that children need to build skills in this area is one of the most important and challenging tasks of early childhood years. This workshop will provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of what resilience is, how it develops, and the key role of educators in building resilience in children.

    Mistaken Goals of Misbehaviour

    • Time:
      6:30-8:30 pm

    • Location:
      Child Care Options, #100-6846 King George Blvd Surrey

    • Workshop Description:
      Children misbehave, but as educators and
      parents we often ask, “why do they misbehave.” Rudolph Dreikurs proposed that children
      misbehave out of a mistaken assumption that they can gain social status with their own bad behavior.
      Dreikurs described four goals of misbehaviour:  
      1. To gain attention.
      2. To gain power and control.
      3. To gain revenge.
      4. To display feelings of inadequacy

      Objectives:
      Identify Rudolf Dreikur’s 4 Mistaken Goals of Misbehaviour
      Apply these goals to the misbehaviour of children in our care
      Explore helpful ways to respond to this
      misbehaviour as ECE Teachers
