Our Lady of Peace to offer Peace for Parents Program
Program will assist adults in managing challenging behaviors in children and adolescents
Shelbyville, Ky. (October 23, 2015) —For many parents, managing difficult behaviors in children can be overwhelming. To help provide parents with tools to help along the way, the Kosair Charities Children’s Peace Center at Our Lady of Peace, part of KentuckyOne Health, will host a Peace for Parents seminar on Thursday, October 1, 2015 at 6:30 p.m. at Wright Elementary located at 500 Rocket Lane in Shelbyville.
The seminar will provide parents with guidelines for arranging home and school environments, setting expectations and encouraging positive behaviors in temperamental children. When addressed at a young age, children’s challenging behaviors can be transformed to positive behavior. The program will be presented by Jordan Hall, MS, a behavior analyst at Our Lady of Peace.
The seminar is part of Our Lady of Peace’s Peace for Parents education series located in various cities.
