United Way of Central Missouri Early Childhood Initiative
Thank you to the United Way of Central Missouri's Early Childhood Initiative for making this series with Velda McKenzie, Conscious Discipline Certified Instructor, available at no cost to participants!
Shift from how do I get my child to ___? to How can I help my child more likely choose? With the powers of knowledge, self-control, attention, and connection we can help guide our children to accepting and setting healthy limits. We all want our children to feel like they are precious and wonderful. Yet, we often find ourselves treating them as less than wonderful when they don't do what we want. We need to switch from relying on fear based to love based discipline.
This sign up is for early childhood educators, childcare providers, foster parents or other professionals working with young children, and parents of children 0-5 who live and work in Camden, Cole, Maries, Miller, Moniteau, Morgan, Osage, Phelps and southern Callaway Counties. There are a limited number of spots are available and all participants MUST be registered in advance in order to attend. If you have registered and later discover that you are unable to attend, please cancel your reservation so that someone else may take your place. If all spots have been filled or you work with an older age group and you would like to be added to the waiting list in case a spot becomes available, please contact Theresa Verslues at [email protected]
Participants desiring child care clock hours must sign with their MOPDID number and be present for the full session in order to receive their 2 clock hours. (Visit www.openinitiative.com to look up your number if you do not remember what it is). If you are a parent or work with young children in a capacity that does not require you to have a MOPDID (such as a CASA volunteer or public school preschool teacher) please indicate your role in the spot where you are asked to provide the MOPDID.
While we love children, we want all attendees to be able to focus their attention on the presenter so please arrange for care for your child.
Registration will close two days before the session or when spots are full.
This session will take place at the Capital West Christian Church Event Center, 1315 Fairgrounds Rd. in Jefferson City. Please watch your email the day prior to the session for any additional annouuncements or in case of inclement weather.
