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Helping parents and teachers replace the outdated, negative tools with positive techniques that empower children is our passion and our business.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!

Event Details

All parents want their child to be successful in life. What ingredients help children to become successful in the real world? Throughout each age and stage of development, it is vital that children experience self-reliance, independence and competencies. From the thrill of riding a trike for the first time to the thrill of driving a car for the first time, success builds upon success.

Parents can have a dramatic impact on helping their kids develop and and practice independence and competency on a daily basis. This workshop will help parents develop a whole child approach to building competencies, independence and self-esteem throughout every age and stage. Join us for this important workshop!

19oct6:30 pm- 8:30 pmParent Workshop: The Spirited Child!!25th Anniversary Special Edition

Event Details

Does your child explode over minor details? Are you exhausted after spending the morning with your child? Does your child seem more negative, more intense, more persistent, more sensitive and more energetic than other kids? How do you discipline a child who refuses to take no for an answer?

Often called difficult or strong-willed, spirited kids are children who are simply “More”. Much More! It takes greater skill to parent spirited kids! Techniques that seem to work for other kids don’t work with spirited children. Successful discipline is possible! This workshop offers practical and positive approaches to parenting spirited children of all ages.

Join Claire Flynn, Jennie Flynn-Buckley, and our long-time partner and friend Gail Allen, as we join forces to teach this 2-hour workshop and celebrate 25 years of delighting in Spirited Children, and their families!
