Self-Regulation and Resilience: Supporting Our Children In Their Hardest Moments

Dr. Doug Bolton
Thursday, February 2, 2023
6:00 – 8:00 PM
Grayslake Middle School
Media Center

Although theories of motivation to explain challenging behaviors were largely disproved decades ago, we still cling to incentives and punishments to manage our children’s behavior. Unfortunately, while these strategies may work in the short run (or not), they can create long-term problems for children and their parents. This workshop will explore the limits and impacts of using incentives and punishments and provide strategies to help children learn to self-regulate during their hardest moments.
