Event details

Parenting with a Pound of Prevention and an Ounce of Cure

presented by Suzanne Kerns, Ph.D.


Workshop Description

Ideal for parents and caregivers with children between the ages of 3-16, participants will have an opportunity to identify personalized strategies to address common challenges with child behavior. Dr. Suzanne Kerns will provide some tips and tools for effective and positive discipline, including the most important tool – prevention! Then, participants will be provided a framework for understanding their child’s behavior and have a chance to come up with a personalized plan.


The goal for this session is for participants to walk away with fresh ideas and a game plan for managing the challenges we all encounter when raising children.
