Parent Education Night – Balancing Love and Limits

In January, our current parents and others from the community attended a presentation by Dr. John Walker, PhD, LMFT on the topic of “Setting Your Child Up for Success: Balancing Love and Limits”.

Being a parent of young children can bring out the best and worst in all of us! Since we as parents receive virtually no training on how to manage temper tantrums, button pushing, and demanding behavior, parenthood can be the most wonderful and humbling experience we have ever had!

Dr. Walker shared more than 25 years of experience working with hundreds of families. He helped us understand how to survive parenthood and set children up for success by finding a balance between love and limits. Dr. Walker shared a time-tested road map that helps parents maintain a nurturing relationship with their children while avoiding power struggles, reducing conflict and instilling accountability.

Those who attended came away with several strategies to utilize with their own children.
