Using three of our parenting tools (priming, praise and presence) we'll discuss how to teach children to wait, how to set up schedules and routines so that kids feel safe and can cooperate, and how to find calm and peace for your children, yourself, and your home.
Drs. Chelsey & Robin Hauge are a double-Ph.D. mother-daughter parenting team! Together, they run Positive Parenthood, which offers relationship based support through courses, coaching, and community. Join them for the next two Tuesdays for a two-part series on parenting through COVID-19 and shelter in place.
