LEAD and SpeakUp! To Host Community Conversation With Behavioralist Jim Kling

Do you want to set fair but firm boundaries with your children? Do you wish children came with an instruction manual for behavior? If your answer is “yes” to either of these questions, the workshop “When Love Doesn’t Conquer All” is for you.

LEAD and the SpeakUP! Prevention Coalition are hosting this free, interactive workshop on Wednesday, November 5, 2014 at Gorton Community Center from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. This workshop is intended for parents and teachers working with children in preschool through 6th grade, and will provide participants with “how to’s” for being a fair but firm parent or teacher.

The workshop facilitator will be Jim Kling. Mr. Kling has a Masters Degree in Special Education and works in the field of behavioral psychology. He is the developer of the Fair but Firm method of behavior management for children and families, and has worked with several students and families in the Lake Forest area. His method works for a variety of children, regardless of diagnosis, level of behavior problems or emotional issues.

Parents and professionals who work with children and teens with behavioral problems are encouraged to attend. Attendees will leave this workshop with effective and concrete techniques that can be used to create environments of mutual respect and cooperation with effective rules, responsibilities and consequences.
