OPTIMIZING INTERACTIONS WITH OUR KIDS
How can we help change their behaviors
without letting our emotions get in the way?
Facilitated by School Psychologist, Dave Sylvestro
6:00 p.m. Sandwiches & Refreshments
6:30 p.m. – 8:15 p.m. Presentation
Too often our emotions get in the way when we talk with our children. During times when we’re seeking to correct behaviors, set clear limits and parameters, or guide them along a more productive path, our conversations with our kids don’t always communicate clearly what we want them to do. Additionally, the way we engage in these important conversations can frequently cause some inadvertent emotional damage – JUST when we want to empower our kids to do better?
During this presentation, school psychologist Dave Sylvestro, will focus on the overarching goals we have when we talk with our children in conflict situations, and how we can ensure that these conversations move BOTH parties toward more constructive and effective behavior patterns.
Mr. Sylvestro facilitates individual – and group-counseling sessions, parent support groups and Dads-Only groups, provides training and staff development to professionals, presents at LD conferences worldwide, and is a contributing writer for Parents Together. He served as Psychologist at Eagle Hill for over 30 years. He currently serves as Psychologist at the Southport School.
