You Can’t Make Me: Effective Boundaries and Follow Through for Motivating Kids

June 15th, 2013

Have you ever listened to someone talk and you know with all your heart they are speaking your truth? I felt that way the first time I saw Dr. Jane Bluestein speak when she came to visit FL a few years ago. I was so enamored with her message. It spoke directly to my heart, so much so that I got a bunch of books she wrote, and still use them to this day!

When I reached out to Dr.  and asked her to speak to the International Parents and Professionals Community, I was overjoyed when she said, YES!!

She’ll be speaking Tuesday, June 18th, on the topic of “You Can’t Make Me: Effective Boundaries and Follow Through for Motivating Kids! Practical and positive strategies to build cooperation, responsibility, and mutual respect with children”

Few things are as aggravating or exhausting as power struggles with kids. If you find yourself nagging, arguing or threatening, being ignored by your children (or students) or having your authority challenged, then you don’t want to miss this call. This also works with whiners, feet-draggers and “space cadets”!
Rather than focusing on how to react to oppositional, obnoxious, passive-aggressive, or disrespectful behaviors, we’ll concentrate on how to prevent these behaviors from occurring in the first place.
On this call you’ll learn how to create a win-win authority relationship in which you can generate cooperation without threats or punishments. We’ll explore practical, effective strategies for reducing stress and conflict in the relationship— including setting and maintaining boundaries, following through to build accountability, increasing positivity, building trust and mutual respect, and accommodating kids’ needs for power within limits that won’t make you crazy. We’ll also examine practical and effective alternatives to common patterns and traditions that tend to undermine our authority.
You seriously don’t want to miss this- she’s been a guest expert on CNN, National Public Radio, and The Oprah Winfrey Show and she will be sharing “magic sentences” & “magic questions” to:

  • Create a win-win authority relationships with kids
  • Generate cooperation without threats or punishment
  • Set and maintain effective, positive boundaries
  • Follow through on boundaries
  • Increase positivity as well as your authority
  • Avoid negative, self-defeating parenting behaviors

This call is applicable to kids of all ages, with strategies for educators, counselors, community workers, and other social service providers, as well as all parents, grandparents and other caregivers.
Dr. Bluestein is amazing! You’ll leave this call with practical ideas and word-for word tools to help create a more positive and peace-filled school and home environment!
