Discipline Without Damage – A Dr Vanessa Lapointe Seminar (BRISBANE)

October 5, 2023, 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


With an introduction by Maggie Dent

Do find yourself yelling at your kids and then walking away thinking, “That wasn’t how it was supposed to go”?

Do you find yourself frustrated with your child’s behaviour, but feel lost as to how to support them?

Do you feel as though you’re reverting back to old methods – such as time-outs and groundings – simply because you’re exhausted and don’t know what else to do?

Parents, caregivers and big people of all kinds will discover how discipline affects children’s development, why our reactions to our children’s behaviour should reinforce connection instead of introduce more upset, and why the disciplinary strategies that may have been used on us as children are not the ones that children really need.

In addition, you’ll learn:

  1. How the concept of “childhood” has been understood in different ways historically and why we must understand it anew today.
  2. The basic and impactful truth behind Dr. Vanessa’s mantra: “See it, feel it, be it.”
  3. The foundation of a healthy, effective approach to discipline that respects your child’s developmental needs… and works!

Tickets: $35

Time: 6.30pm-8.30pm (doors open at 5.45pm)

Please book online via trybooking https://www.trybooking.com/CJUCO
