Event Types :
Led by mental health counselors from the CHILL program at Orange County Public Schools, this educational seminar will teach you strategies for positive parenting.

Being a parent is one of the most challenging jobs there is. Parenting does not come with a handbook or the tools to know how to manage and support the challenges that arise while raising children. Society has many expectations about how to raise healthy, confident, and resilient children; yet parents are constantly judged by the actions and choices of their children.

Led by current mental health counselors from the CHILL program at Orange County Public Schools, this educational seminar will teach you strategies for positive parenting. This presentation will define and review different parenting styles so you can find the right fit for yourself and your children. You will learn how to promote a positive relationship with your children and manage specific behaviors by age and stage.

Additionally, you will learn strategies to help move yourself as a parent towards confidence and leadership, learn how to increase communication through child centered time, and learn how to trouble shoot for issues such as sibling rivalry, anxiety, and tantrums.

This program is presented by CHILL Counselors and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.

About the Presenter:  

The CHILL (Community Help & Intervention in Life’s Lessons) program in Orange County Public Schools was founded in 1998 by the Winter Park Health Foundation in partnership with the 12 Orange County Public School serving Winter Park, Maitland and Eatonville. CHILL provides free, confidential, in-school counseling to students and their families. It is part of a collection of school-based health and wellness services supported by WPHF called the Coordinated Youth Initiative (CYI). Other services include nurses, nurse practitioners in school-based health centers, and healthy school teams.
