Behaviour Management Techniques
With Family Solutions Somerset
Monday, 24th January at 6:30pm, estimated end time 8pm
A whistle stop tour of some parenting techniques and strategies to use with your children aged 2-18.
We will be looking at the following principles that underpin all areas of parenting (and relationships) whatever the age.
- Emotion Coaching, being able to label our emotions- CBT/Behaviour Curve
- Showing empathy not sympathy
- Attention – children will seek any kind of attention – good or bad
- Ignoring behaviours we want to see less of
- Specific praise… labelled
- Social Learning Theory – new behaviours can be learnt by observing and imitating others (bandura)
- Use of rewards – after the event (bribes come before), smart and cheap
The session will be fully collaborative, and we will be open to conversations and listening to your own techniques which have been successful.

SCC Educational Psychologist

The beliefs children have about intelligence, effort, and struggle impact the choices they make about learning. Children with a fixed mindset believe that intelligence is fixed at birth and doesn’t change with practice. They see school as a place where abilities are evaluated and they interpret mistakes are a sign that they lack talent.
This session will help you help your child/ren to develop a growth mindset believing that intelligence can be developed. These students see school as a place to develop their abilities and think of challenges as opportunities to grow.

This session provides an introduction to dyslexia. It explains why children with dyslexia can find reading, spelling and writing so challenging and describes strategies that can be used to help children improve in these areas.
