Encouraging (more) Positive Behaviour in Toddlers

This workshop is for parents wanting to know how to get the best behaviour from their toddlers. It starts with information about typical toddler development. Did you know that developmentally we expect toddler’s to find it difficult to share? Watch the video below to find out more.

The workshop also introduces strategies of play, praise, ignore and timeout to calm down. It is important to remember that strategies like ignoring and timeout will be less effective if parents do not play with and praise children for the small things they do.

 

This workshop uses ideas and guidance from The Incredible Years by Carolyn Webster Stratton. This book is available in local libraries.

Getting Ready for Nursery or School
