Restorative Practices in the Home & School
Strengthening the Relationship
with Your School-Aged Child
Tuesday, April 23, 2013 @7pm at Bayside Middle School
This approach seeks to foster healthy behaviours and stronger relationships, by engaging parents, children and teachers in restorative ways. Key to this practice is the understanding that challenging and inappropriate behaviour is an opportunity for learning.
- how to deal with issues relevant to parenting
- gain greater understanding of child's needs,
- resolve conflicts and strengthen relationships, and
- apply techniques right away in parenting your child.
