Webinar: Encouraging good behaviour

Presented by Dr Justin Coulson

8 June 2022 8:00pm AEST

Discipline is one of the most confusing and challenging topics that parents grapple with. When you look up the word discipline in the dictionary the first definition is “punishment”. But this is a relatively new way of  understanding the word. Until a couple of hundred years ago, to be disciplined meant to be shown a way to follow. This webinar, presented by Dr Justin Coulson is for every parent who has ever been so desperate to get their kids to ‘behave’ that they’ve tried Triple P, Super-Nanny, 1-2-3 Magic, and pretty much everything else out there, and still found themselves stuck. It explores the concept of discipline and how parents can encourage good behaviour in children.

Key learning and discussion points include:

  • why the centuries-old strategies we still cling to should be left in the past
  • how we get discipline wrong and why
  • real world examples of discipline that are as imperfect as parents and their kids, but that still work
  • ideas for discipline that turn everything you thought you knew about the topic on its head
  • applicable strategies for everyone
