Ann Corwin – The Child Connection: Simple Parenting Solutions
Raising kids can be the most rewarding experience you’ll ever have. It can also be your most frustrating. Children are eager learners, but because their brains are still developing they learn in ways we don’t often think about. Seemingly small matters like eye contact or physical movement can be powerful motivators you can use to improve communication and help your children grow. Spend 50 minutes with The “Parenting Doctor” and learn why kids have tantrums and what you can do about them, what does it mean when kids start asking “why,” why when you speak to kids can be as important as what you say and non-verbal ways to reinforce good (or bad) behavior. Dr. Ann Corwin has over 25 years experience as a teacher and consultant on parenting and child development, and she holds a Ph.D. in Marriage, Family and Child Therapy. Her work includes parenthood training programs and broadcast programs on parenting, and she has been widely published in both professional journals and the popular press. Bonus features include in-depth interview with Ann, audience Q&A session, and more!
