Dr. Wrighton will explain her cutting edge theories on how to handle chronic, errant child behavior while loving the child at the same time. Some of her secrets are: 1) Love and respect the child first, regardless of behavior. 2)  “Catch the child in the act of being terrific,” capitalizing on each positive second. 3) Help children want to and so change their behavior as they take responsibility for their actions. 4) Learn to set limitations and consequences, create positive responses and develop motivating systems, and flexible behavior charts that will help children, parents and teachers see positive and permanent progress.
