Raising brilliantly behaved children

Hear about positive approaches to children’s behaviour and discipline, which can lower stress and drama in the family.

Learn how to:

  • encourage cooperation rather than conflict
  • use alternatives to punishment
  • deal with challenging behaviour in ways that bring out children’s strengths and character.

Watch a recording of the seminar presented by parenting expert Jodie Benveniste on 21 March 2018. This video will be available until Friday 20 April.
