Crown Heights Parenting Workshop

Our seven session workshop gives you in-depth training in proven core skills to help you with one of the hardest but most important and fulfilling jobs we can have.  Additionally, you will learn how to set limits while maintaining goodwill, cope with your child's negative feelings, express anger without hurting, engage your child's willing cooperation, and help your child become caring and responsible. 

You will also learn how to resolve conflict peacefully and create a family atmosphere of love and respect that will transform your family life. 

The course is based off of the  "How To Talk So Kids Will Listen" method by Adele Faber and Elaine Maizlish, both renowned for their proven exceptional parenting methods.  While using this method, Yisroel also incorporates many of the latest parenting methods.

This course is designed to support you in the day to day challenges of being a parent.  (For example: encourage teenagers to talk about thier day, motivate children to clean up after themselves, teach them to brush their teeth, have them get into bed on time, understand why not to hit their sibling etc...)

You will gain strategies and perspectives that clear the internal conflict you may be feeling and acquire techniques to parent with confidence.
