Father talking to son

Learn concrete tools you can use immediately to improve cooperation and goodwill at home.

With Julie King, JD, Parent Educator at JFCS’ Center for Children and Youth and co-author of How to Talk So Little Kids Will Listen and the companion app, Pocket Parent.

This 4-session Zoom workshop meets on Wednesdays: 4/28, 5/5, 5/12, and 5/19 from 8:00 – 10:00 pm (PDT).

During these challenging times, are you getting worn down by morning mayhem, bedtime battles, sibling scuffles, dawdling, and defiance? Do you try to avoid using threats, bribes, and punishments but find yourself using them anyway, just to survive the day? Would you like to learn practical and effective methods that will make life with little kids easier and more satisfying?

“How To Talk So Little Kids Will Listen” is an effective and highly engaging program for parents and caregivers of children ages 2 to 7 based on the best selling book by Joanna Faber and Julie King. You’ll leave each session with concrete tools that you can use immediately to improve cooperation and goodwill at home.

“This workshop was WONDERFUL! It was so helpful to talk to Julie and hear her wise and experienced take on so many of the struggles that we go through as parents to little children every day. She has such a graceful way to help us see the impact of our words on our children and how we can shift our thinking and way we speak to really help them be problem solvers and want to cooperate. I highly recommend it!”—Nicole
