Perfecting the Morning Routine – Tips for Parents

Would you like to get your children out of bed, fed and off to school on time without nagging, hassling, and threatening them? You deserve a peaceful morning routine as much as your children do. Come and learn with other parents the one morning fix to starting your day right. End power struggles and undue service. Hand over responsibility in a way your children will take up the task. Feel confident about your children and your behavior at the start of every day. No gimmicks, just solid know-how based on clinical insights from family conflict resolution and behavioral motivation research.

Beacon Health & Fitness, Good Shepherd Montessori School and Family Psychology of South Bend are pleased to sponsor a FREE lecture series on parenting.
Parenting Tips Lecture Series is a program that meets to discuss topics and give valuable advice to parents about raising children. The lecture series is led by John Petersen, PsyD, and special lecturer Sharon Bain, LCSW. Petersen and Bain are principals at Family Psychology of South Bend where they specialize in marriage, family, and sexual health. They also serve Good Shepherd Montessori School as Developmental Educational Consultants, helping parents and staff support students in their developmental and relational needs.
