Louisville, Ky. (September 8, 2014) — The Kosair Charities Children’s Peace Center at Our Lady of Peace, part of KentuckyOne Health, will host “Positive Ways to Address Impulsive Behavior at Home and at School” on Thursday, September 25, 2014 at 6:30 p.m. at LaGrange Elementary School Library (500 West Jefferson St., LaGrange, Ky.)
This free seminar will teach parents, teachers and counselors effective ways to assist their children, patients and students with self-control. Dawn Oak, a licensed clinical social worker, will lead the session.
“Most children learn self-control as they age, but sometimes, children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder have trouble learning how to control their impulses,” said Oak. “We want to aid adults in how to manage these behaviors so their children can continue to be successful in school and everyday life.”
This seminar is part of Peace for Parents, an ongoing initiative that provides 60-90 minute seminars throughout on various topics. Upcoming seminars include:
