How to Help Behaviorally-Challenging Kids Gain Skills & Solve Problems with Dr. Ross Greene

/
Dr. Ross Greene served on the faculty at Harvard Medical School for over 20 years, and is now adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at Virginia Tech and adjunct Professor in the Faculty of Science at the University of Technology Sydney in Australia. He is the author of the influential, well-known best-selling books The Explosive Child and Lost at School as well as Raising Human Beings, Lost and Found and Lost in School and has helped to bring about an upcoming documentary called “The Kids We Lose.” He is a fierce and articulate advocate for the compassionate understanding and treatment of behaviorally challenging kids and their caregivers. Drawing upon vast clinical and consultation experience and research in the neurosciences, his innovative, research-based Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) approach – which posits that challenging behavior is the result of lagging skills (rather than lagging motivation) and emphasizes solving problems collaboratively (rather than use of motivational procedures) – has been implemented in countless families and hundreds of schools, inpatient units, and residential and juvenile detention facilities. The Collaborative & Proactive Solutions model helps parents, teachers, and kids work together to solve problems in a way that respects our kids while supporting them in improving their behavior. Dr. Greene is also the founder of Lives in the Balance, which aims to provide resources and programs to caregivers of behaviorally challenging kids, address the issues that cause many of these kids to slip through the cracks; and to promote practices that foster the better side of human nature in all children.

Homework, Extracurriculars, Over-Scheduling & Downtime with KJ Dell’Antonia

/
With so many opportunities and demands made on children today, it can be hard to balance sports, homework, activities and yes, if we can muster it, downtime for our kids. How do we help our children and our families make decisions about what to commit to and what to forego during the already busy school year? We are right at that moment in my own house, as my daughter signed up for violin this year within her school— but was learning piano last year after school, learned guitar in summer camp— so…does she do all three now? And let’s not forget that she also take gymnastics and “mom, can I take horseback riding too?”— oh! And Hebrew school, we’ve got that also. And did I mention I have a son? For him, soccer, mad science and yes, Hebrew school as well. Just looked at all the options can make a parent tired. We give ourselves a lot of pep talks about how our kids behave better when they ‘re busy, and we have to work so our kids might as well be doing something productive and isn’t it better for them to be around other kids expanding their minds, seeking their passion or moving their bodies? And if yes, which direction do we go and how can we remain grounded, sane and happy in the process? For a discussion about sports, homework, after-school activities, downtime and how to get it all in to our schedules, we are turning to guest, KJ Dell’Antonia for a second time (she was on in March talking about how to be a happier parent).

How to Help Young Kids Cope with Tempers and Tantrums with Dr. Lynne Kenney

/
Parenting young children can be tough! They can get overloaded, stuck, frustrated and as we’ve talked about before, they need our help when their limbic brains are on meltdown. So what can you SAY, THINK and DO, to help your children manage their BIG feelings and learn to do as you ask? Today, we are talking a second time with pediatric Psychologist, Dr. Lynne Kenney, about how to handle the tantrums, the "I won'ts" and "I can'ts", to help you parent with more collaboration, peace, and calm in your family.

Praise for Dr. Robyn

It was phenomenal!!!!  Dr. Robyn did a great job and we touched the lives (and changed the lives) for many young women! It was a very rewarding experience and we will definitely work with Robyn again for our McLean event and our Houston event.

In her energetic and engaging style, Dr. Silverman was able to touch upon vital issues that mothers and daughters are beginning to face in their child’s “tween” years. Her interactive exercises, “rewards” for audience participation, storytelling, and posed questions allowed both mothers and daughters to open up in a non threatening environment using effective communication tools in a fun and exciting way.

As the applause, laughter, participation, and evaluations reflected, the audience found this to be an excellent presentation, appreciating Dr. Silverman’s enthusiasm and easy going, accessible style. We had many people make a point to come over and tell us how much they loved the event and to thank us for a wonderful evening.

We were so glad to work with Dr. Silverman on this amazing night and look forward to working with her again in the future. We highly recommend her as a speaker for your next event.

On behalf of our students, staff, and parents, I would like to say “Thank You” for a wonderful presentation! Several kids expressed their thankfulness to me for having you come and speak to them, and the response from the parents was awesome. We will continue to educate, expect great things from our kids, and build a school of character! Thank you again.

Dr. Silverman is awesome! She is an incredible speaker, and the sincerity and truth in her words are evident. After the presentation to the students, they expressed their appreciation with a standing ovation–which doesn’t happen often in junior high!

Dr. Robyn was amazing! Before the workshop officially started, she walked around and warmly welcomed each woman by shaking her hand and saying hello. I loved this…Dr. Robyn’s mix of personal anecdotes, eye-opening statistics, and disturbing images make the seminar funny, warm, emotional, and touching… Attending Dr. Robyn’s seminar empowered me to want to do even more. She empowered us to be the change we want for our girls, and instead of just leaving it at that, she gave us realistic steps we can take to counteract the negative and confusing messages presented to our girls on a daily basis. And I wasn’t the only one who was impressed. Our participants LOVED Dr. Robyn! They lined up in droves to buy her book, Good Girls Don’t Get Fat, have her sign it, and speak with her about their thoughts, opinions, and gratitude…I am working to collaborate with Dr. Robyn in the future!
