TRIPLE P – Positive Parenting Program – TWO GREAT OPPORTUNITIES…

1st Opportunity – TEENS DISCUSSION GROUP FOR PARENTS

Can you identify with this? Your baby’s almost an adult, or at least that’s what he or she thinks. So, life at home can be a little strained. Maybe your 13-year-old son grunts instead of speaking to you. Or your 14-year-old daughter wants to go to parties with people you don’t even know. It’s not that you’ve got a “wild” kid, or the most disrespectful kid of all time. You’d just like to make sure things don’t get out of hand.

If you can identify with that… then this four part Triple P Discussion Series may be just provide the help you’ve been looking for!

2nd Opportunity – HASSLE FREE SHOPPING WITH CHILDREN

Is shopping hassle-free or a challenge OR somewhere in-between. This discussion group, offered by UW-Madison, Division of Extension gives positive parenting suggestions to help you avoid shopping hassles and teach your child to behave responsibly on shopping trips. You will discuss common shopping hassles, things that influence children’s behavior, and some of the “traps” parents often fall into when shopping. You’ll learn how to keep track of problems associated with shopping to better understand them and strategies for preventing them. Finally, you’ll develop a personal shopping plan to reduce the chances for hassles and learn strategies to manage misbehavior if it happens.
