Managing Children's Behaviour

Ref: C2420418

This short course will consider differing behavior management strategies, both preventative and reactive, for consideration by participants. We will look also at the thinking and experiences that makes up the background for the ways we manage children's behavior. By using this approach we can explore practical, everyday, ways to help children (parents) face the world in a loving partnership with their parents (children).
