Conference 1 - Denita Dinger

Empowering Children with the Gift of Control


Afraid of what the "out of control" child in your program will do if you "just" let them play? Feeling like sticking to a rigid schedule is the only way for you to be able to control unacceptable behaviours? Then this is the workshop for you! We all have a desire to be in control. Children are the same, they seek control, they NEED control. Knowing you are trusted to solve problems, use powerful, GOOD, words and use materials for tasks of your own choosing not only helps a child feel like they are in control, but these things also EMPOWER children. 

You will walk away from this workshop with practical ideas that will empower children with the type of control that provides opportunities to build life-long skills.
