GPS Early Childhood- Good News About Bad Behavior & Why Don't Kids Do What You Want

  • MSD15 Administration Center 1860 Glen Ellyn Road Glendale Heights, IL, 60139 United States (map)

Today’s young children and teens seem to be less disciplined that ever. Spanking is out, yelling can be harmful and timeouts/ grounding may not improve behavior. Drawing on her personal experience, and the latest research on play, technology, and failure, Katherine Reynolds will share a new model of discipline for a generation of children who are out of control.

Here Reynolds outlines a theory which centers on listening and building a child’s skills to address the root causes of misbehavior.

Join us and learn how we can help teens develop their inner motivation to behave well, encourage their independence, and support good mental health. Parents will learn to respond to their kids’ misbehavior instead of reacting to it so that they get the results they want -children who are self-disciplined, confident, and better equipped to handle life’s challenges.

The Good News About Bad Behavior /Early Childhood Event 9:30 a.m. Marquardt District 15 administration center, 1860 Glen Ellyn Road in Glendale Heights.

For this presentation Reynolds will address her remarks to parents and caregivers of our youngest children, 3-10 years of age.

Katherine Reynolds Lewis is an award-winning independent journalist, author and speaker based in the Washington D.C. area. Her just released book, “The Good News About Bad Behavior”, explains why modern kids are so undisciplined and tells the stories of innovators who are rebuilding lost self-control, resolving family conflict and changing the trajectory of young lives.
