Hidden in Plain Sight - Spot signs of at-risk behaviors

March 12, 2018 6:30 PM at Issaquah High School, 700 2nd Ave SE, Issaquah, WA

{REGISTER HERE}

April 16, 2018 6:30 PM at Central Washington University, 120 228th Ave NE, Sammamish, WA

{REGISTER HERE}

ADULTS ONLY.  Open house 6:30-7:30pm, with a presentation by experts 7:30-8:30pm.

Would you see the signs of youth alcohol or drug use in your home?  Looks can be very deceiving - especially if you don't know what to look for.  The “Hidden In Plain Sight” initiative helps parents spot signs of at-risk behaviors using an interactive display of a teenager's bedroom.  After walking through the display, participants will learn more about adolescent development and common signs of substance use provided by professionals in law enforcement, treatment, substance abuse prevention, and other experts and parents.

 

Peaceful Parent, Happy Siblings - How to stop the fighting and raise friends for life

May 17, 2018 at 10:00AM  at First Stage (Kidstage) Theatre, Issaquah

{REGISTER HERE}

Conflict is a part of every human relationship, and children learn essential skills when they encounter conflict and resolve it. The key is supporting them to resolve conflict with mutual respect, so they’re learning conflict resolution rather than bullying. In this talk with Dr. Laura Markham, you will learn:

  • Teaching peace: how you can help your children learn to express their needs and emotions without attacking their sibling. 
  • A radical approach to sharing that eliminates conflict and develops generosity.
  • How to connect with each child so they truly believe you couldn’t love anyone else more.
  • How to foster a loving family culture that encourages laughter and minimizes fighting.

For parents only.  Free for PTSA members of Issaquah School District, $10 donation requested of non-members.

Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids - How to help children WANT to cooperate without yelling, bribes, threats or punishment

May 16, 2018 at 7:00 PM at Skyline High School Theater

{REGISTER HERE}

Are you tired of battling with your child? Do you wish you knew how to get your child cooperating without yelling and threats? Are you trying to find the sweet spot between spoiling and strict? Dr. Laura Markham gives you practical everyday strategies to help you raise a child who WANTS to cooperate, by working with your child rather than trying to manipulate or control.

No parent is peaceful all the time, but it's completely possible to create a more peaceful home where affection, connection and humor help you resolve conflict happily, and where kids WANT to follow your lead.

In this talk with Dr. Laura Markham, you'll have a chance to ask questions about your own parenting, and you'll learn:

  • Why children misbehave -- and how to help them WANT to cooperate without yelling, threats, bribes or consequences
  • What research shows about how children develop self-­discipline
  • The 4 power tools you can use to connect with children and help them with their emotions
  • Why yelling and timeouts actually cause more misbehavior
  • How you can create the relationship you want with your child

For parents only.  Free for PTSA members of Issaquah School District, $10 donation requested of non-members.

 

Register for these and future events at ParentWiser.org.  Walk-in are also welcome.  The Issaquah School District PTSA, in partnership with the Issaquah Schools Foundation and Swedish Hospital, bring you ParentWiser, a lecture series focused on bringing parents of our schools the latest research and information to be the most effective parents they can be.
