Psychologist Rosemond Presents Workshop
Family psychologist, author, and prominent speaker John K. Rosemond brings his parenting expertise to the Sandhills Friday, Jan. 30, and Saturday, Jan. 31.
Rosemond presents his most popular seminar, "Parenting the Strong-Willed Child," at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 30. His practical advice centers around what he terms the "three Cs of communication, consequences and consistency," resulting in a formula for the successful discipline of all children, especially those who are strong-willed.
In this seminar, Rosemond addresses hard questions such as "How can I get my child to stop arguing with me?" and "How do I discipline a child who does not want to be told what to do?" with concrete solutions and a humorous style. The session will be followed by a book signing.
"The Keys to Effective Discipline Workshop" from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 31, gets to the heart of the single greatest child-rearing issue. This presentation provides parents with the information and skills they need to begin making significant positive changes in their discipline style, and therefore their children's behavior.
Rosemond builds upon the three Cs, describing them as three legs of the disciplinary tripod and emphasizes that weakness in one of the legs will cause the entire structure to wobble. He shows parents, through example, how to put the skills to work in their home. Parents report leaving the workshop feeling not only relieved of significant guilt and anxiety, but also inspired, informed, and prepared to be calm, self-confident leaders of children.
A psychologist with 35 years' experience, Rosemond writes parenting columns that appear in more than 200 newspapers, and he has authored 13 books including the bestselling "Six-Point Plan for Raising Happy, Healthy Children." Rosemond advocates a return to parent-centered families where children are raised to become responsible adults. He teaches logical, straightforward approaches for the most significant challenges parents face today.
Both sessions are at Pinecrest High School's Auditorium in Southern Pines. The cost is $10 for the Friday seminar, $15 for the Saturday workshop, or $20 for both sessions. Tickets are available at the Moore County Chamber of Commerce, online at www.sandhillsmops.com, or at the door.
These seminars are made possible by the support of Drug-Free Moore County Inc., SandhillsKids.com, and The Village Chapel and are coordinated by Sandhills Mothers of PreSchoolers (MOPS). Part of MOPS International, Sandhills MOPS exists to meet the needs of mothers from different lifestyles who share a common desire to be the very best moms they can be. Regular meetings provide a forum for mothers of all ages and from all backgrounds to build friendships, share parenting strategies, and meet with mentors.
