Praise for Parents
A talk with Ishtar Beck, family counsellor and parent mentor. PAC is pleased to have Ishtar Beck back to present a talk at 6:30 in the Selkirk Library on January 21. As a kick-off to her Raising the Next Generation workshop, Ishtar is having a free talk open to all parents. Please let us know if you'd like to come so we can save you a seat! Childcare and light refreshments are provided by PAC!
In this presentation, Ishtar Beck, Selkirk mom and professional counsellor, speaks to the difference between praise as “approval” and praise as “encouragement.” Parents will take home three easy steps for guiding children to be more self-motivated. Beware: more confidence for kids and an increasingly peaceful, cooperative, and enjoyable atmosphere at home may result!
