Discipline Without Damage

Interior Community Services and Secwepemc Child and Family Services are pleased to bring Dr. Vanessa Lapointe, Author of Discipline without Damage: How to get your kids to behave without messing them up, to Kamloops on September 18 & 19, 2017!

Monday Sept. 18, 2017 6pm - 9pm - Open to Community Members
*space is limited to 170 seats

When your child is threatening a meltdown in the grocery aisle, is it really possible to keep your cool, get the behaviour turned around, and support healthy development, all at the same time?! Parents, caregivers and big people of all kinds will discover how discipline affects children’s development, why our reactions to our children’s behavior should reinforce connection instead of introduce more upset, and why the disciplinary strategies that may have been used on us as children are not the ones that children really need. In addition, you’ll learn:

  • How the concept of "childhood" has been understood in different ways historically and why we must understand it anew today.
  • The basic and impactful truth behind Dr. Vanessa’s mantra "See it, feel it, be it."
  • The foundation of a healthy, effective approach to discipline that respects your child’s developmental needs… and works!

Get a signed copy of Dr. Vanessa Lapointe’s book Disciple without Damage: How to get your kids to behave without messing them up for $21 - taxes included (while supplies last) - exact change appreciated!
