At For Kids’ Sake, our goals are simple. We want to change the world. That’s all. We believe that if children are treated with dignity and respect, listened to and taken seriously, they will grow up treating others the same way.

At For Kids’ Sake, we provide parents and teachers with the latest information on child growth and development, focusing on effective and positive parenting and teaching strategies to support them in this vital job.

Helping parents and teachers replace the outdated, negative tools with positive techniques that empower children is our passion and our business. Each adult that makes the shift from punishing children to guiding children will change the world, one child at a time. Join the “kind yet firm” revolution with For Kids’ Sake!

19sep6:30 pm- 8:30 pmParent Workshop: Positive Discipline with ConsequencesUsing Natural and Logical Consequences

Event Details

“If you’ll get dressed, I’ll give you some candy”. . . “If you don’t get dressed, no TV today!”. . . Out of desperation, many parents have resorted to using threats or bribes to get children to behave.  Most parents have also experienced the frustration of having their child say “I didn’t want to watch TV or eat that yucky candy anyway!”  Instead of threats or bribes, consequences can be a positive tool that teaches self-control, responsibility, problem-solving, and cooperation.  Setting consequences can also be the hardest part of parenting effectively.  This workshop will help parents set natural and logical consequences that teach instead of punish.  Consequences can positively change your household.  Join us!

Event Details

Most parents have experienced the horrified, guilty feeling of finding out that their child has hurt another child.  Of all the impulsive acts a child is likely to do, aggressive behavior is the one that seems to leave parents feeling the most surprised and embarrassed.  For younger kids, biting, hitting, pushing, kicking, yelling…what is going on here?  Older kids have their own versions of aggressive behaviors: name calling, taunting, teasing, and social exclusion.  What is the best to handle these situations? Are there really ages and stages of aggressive behavios that are typical, and that we can plan to manage? Yes! This workshop will help parents decode aggressive behaviors, and provide tools to manage these behaviors effectively. Join us !
