Event Description

The Adlerian Counselling and Consulting Group welcomes Alyson Schafer, Adlerian Family Therapist, Bestselling Author and
Internationally Acclaimed Parenting Expert to discuss 'Raising Responsible Children: A Collaborative Approach to Raising Kids Who Can'.

Today’s children seem to lack the interest or enthusiasm for independence that other generations enjoyed. Why do we find it so hard to get our children to be punctual, do their chores and manage their school work without our constant nagging and supervision? Do you recognize the signs of a power struggle before you’re
in the thick of it?

In this talk, Alyson will discuss:
• The importance of giving children autonomy
• The factors that interfere with transferring responsibility to children
• Strategies to employ and how to keep kids accountable
• How to resolve power struggles in positive ways
