Self-Paced Learning in Your Thinkific Class

Event Details

Need flexible learning you can complete at your own pace?  Join this engaging self-paced learning opportunity and finish three training hours any time between now and December 31, 2022!  You can take this Part 1 only, Part 2, or both for a total of up to 5-training hours and a special bundle price!

Have you been concerned about children you care for who:

  • Struggles to do a task and then they simply give up, whining for help?
  • Exhibits needy and demanding behavior?
  • Need constant validation and attention?
  • Is unkind to others?
  • Acts helpless when asked to help?

I was surprised to learn one major reason for these behaviors is related to the well-meaning self-esteem movement!  

During this session, you will

  • Gain an understanding of why this was happening with children in the U.S. and what you could do about it.
  • Collect strategies to reduce whining and needy behavior, build a "can do" attitude, and promote kinder and more thoughtful behavior.
  • Identify strategies to promote a trusting and responsive relationship that will reduce challenging behaviors and send the children you care for on the road to success,  today in your care and into adulthood!
  • View an entertaining and engaging 1.5 hour version of the live webinar featuring Raelene Ostberg on the webcam, give your insight, and apply the concepts to your care environment.
  • Have fun learning during an engaging pre-recorded webinar with Raelene Ostberg, Master Trainer and Founder of Thriving Together, LLC.
