This three-week workshop helps you and your child’s school work together. The lessons teach parents the same intervention tools used by teachers in their kid’s classroom for greater consistency and greater results.  
Any adult involved in keeping a child safe, parent or non-parent, can attend the workshops.
Positive Solutions for Families helps improve child behavior by encouraging parents to:

  • Be attentive. | Stop your child immediately when bad behavior appears. Show him or her what to do and provide an opportunity to do it correctly. Discipline should be appropriate and consistent.
  • Be patient. | Show your child that you care through your commitment and encouragement.
  • Be positive. | Praise goes a long way with children, especially with those who struggle. Provide positive feedback.

The Positive Solutions for Families uses the PBIS approach: Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports. The PBIS model is also used in area schools. By offering this type of behavior intervention in the home and classroom, parents, teachers, and community members can work together to reinforce strategies for positive child behavior. &nbsp

School-wide PBIS and PBIS Parent Modules address targeted behaviors in order to “improve lifestyle results (personal, health, social, family, work, recreation) for all youth by making targeted misbehavior less effective, efficient, and relevant, and desired behavior more functional” (San Jose Unified School District, 2015).

Free light meal and childcare are provided.   Available in Allamakee, Howard, and Winneshiek Counties.
