Enrol in this webinar (pre-recorded) to find out why exposure to nature is so important to brain development and how easy it is to incorporate nature in the curriculum every day. Daily nature play has a positive impact on children with ADHD, FASD, and those of us who are "spirited".

         Negotiating with Children

   Dr, Ingrid Crowther

The ability to negotiate is a valuable and necessary life skill. Negotiation involves empathy and compromise and children who learn to negotiate acquire and learn the importance of these abilities.  

 

This webinar provides a framework for negotiating with children from infancy to school age. It explains how children at different ages think differently which influences the strategies that you use to build these skills from the foundation up. The process is an essential aspect of the transition from discipline to guidance and the support of social competence.
