Why do some children and teens “lose it” over seemingly insignificant issues? What do you do when everyday activities turn into power struggles that no one wins? How can we turn challenging discipline situations into opportunities to teach life skills and build strong relationships?

Professionals, advocates, parents, and grandparents from all over the Greater New York area learned answers to these and other key questions at Ohel’s October 29 Community Conference, Challenging Child and Teen Behaviors: Helping All Children Be Successful, sponsored by the Mel and Phyllis Zachter Ohel Institute for Training.

The standing-room-only audience gained valuable insights and practical strategies from internationally-recognized educator Mary Sheedy Kurcinka, Ed.D., author of Raising Your Spirited Child; Kids, Parents and Power Struggles; and Sleepless in America: Is Your Child Misbehaving or Missing Sleep?

One of the attendees commented, “This was an awesome conference! The presenter was fantastic, and gave us excellent insights and realistic solutions. Thanks for a job well done!” A parent in attendance said, “Today’s speaker was so interesting and full of great knowledge. I have a lot of take-home lessons to help me be a better parent.” A professional said, “What a great combination of cutting-edge science and hands-on practicality! I can’t wait to apply what I’ve learned with my students.”
