Who’s In Charge? Why Adults Need to Lead

Workshop Title:  WHO’S IN CHARGE? WHY ADULTS NEED TO LEAD

With Deborah MacNamara

Online presentation and discussion

Wednesday, June 12, 2024

6:30pm to 8:30pm

 

Suitable for PARENTS, CAREGIVERS, and CHILD CARE PROVIDERS

 

Description

A growing number of children are presenting as demanding, prescriptive, bossy and controlling. A disturbing number of these alpha children are turning into bullies as well. Alpha children tend to have difficulties letting themselves be parented or taught. This is making the child-adult dance much more difficult than it used to be or needs to be, despite the plethora of advice-giving and strategies available today. The surprising roots of the alpha complex will be examined, opening the doors for lasting change in the family, classroom, and society.
