  • Family Partnership
  • Workshop
  • General Interest

This workshop will present 4 basic parenting styles and how they impact children in the classroom. Learn how these styles present themselves in the areas of discipline, communication, nurturance, and expectation, then examine the effects each style has on child development and how this plays out in the classroom. Finally, you will explore how to determine additional support or accommodations that may be needed as a result of parenting style—and how parent education can be a tool to help families provide a solid foundation for their children.
