Workshop to be offered at St Thomas Episcopal Preschool on Nov. 14
They weep, they wail, they stomp their feet. They might even hold their breath until they turn blue, making you just want to sink through the floor. A child’s tantrum can be a parent’s most frustrating and embarrassing situation.
On Thursday, November 14, Child Development specialist Sandi Schubert will lead a workshop to help parents and caregivers learn how to defuse tantrums, and even stop them before they start. The one-hour program will cover:
· The fallacy of punishment and rewards
· Setting boundaries
· Why tantrums occur
· Getting through the drama
· Learning the triggers
· Becoming closer to your child
· Reaching the eye of the storm
· Learning to listen
· Redefining your expectations for your child
A former Training and Curriculum Specialist for U.S. Navy Child Development Centers, Sandi Schubert has a B.S. in Child Development from Cal State Fullerton, and more than 30 years experience in the field.
