Description

CRASH COURSE: EARLY CHILDHOOD PARENTING

BASED ON LOVE AND LOGIC® PRINCIPLES

This Crash Course offers key parenting strategies condensed into one day of training. By the end, you may feel like you’ve been drinking from the fire hose but you’ll go home with a great overview of new parenting strategies. It’s perfect for those who cannot attend a 5-week class and for those who want a review or overview of Love and Logic skills blended with the latest developments in parenting techniques.

Key Concepts Include:

  • Putting an end to arguing, backtalk and begging
  • How to stop yelling at your kids
  • Setting limits without waging war: enforceable statements
  • Ending power struggles with your kids
  • Getting kids to listen the first time
  • Helping kids cool down
  • What to do when you don’t know what to do

Facilitator: Kerry Stutzman, MSW, LMFT, Independent Facilitator of the Love and Logic Curriculum. Kerry has a private practice with a primary focus on parent coaching and family therapy. As the mother/stepmother of six children, Kerry teaches from the perspective of a real-life parent who is still “in the trenches”of raising delightful, challenging, aggravating and wonderful young people.

Kerry is a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, a clinical member of the American Association of Marriage & Family Therapy, an Independent Facilitator of Love and Logic Curricula. She has trained in multiple approaches to working with couples and families including Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Dialect Developmental Pychotherapy (DDP), The Gottman Method of Relationship Therapy, JourneyDance and others. She has extensive experience working with parents going through divorce, stepparenting, raising teens and young adults, and has a book in progress on staying sane while raising young children.  Kerry has been teaching Love and Logic parenting classes since 1999.

Who should attend? Parents, caregivers and educators of young children, ages 1-12.
