Positive Discipline Speaking Engagements

Author Gail Reichlin, bilingual in English and Spanish, has presented over 700 positive discipline keynotes, teacher trainings and parenting workshops in more than 100 cities throughout North and South America.

 


 

Gail offers positive discipline principles and practical solutions to common behavior challenges parents and teachers face daily with 2- to 6-year-olds --such as, morning "crazies", hitting and hurting others, tantrums, whining, the "gimmes", lying, disrespectful attitude, mealtime and bedtime refusals, power struggles and more.

Through Gail's humorous examples, she offers strategies that work while preserving the dignity of both adult and child.  Although her anecdotes highlight specific situations with young children, her sanity saving techniques are effective with "children" of all ages--including your spouse, your friends, your boss and even your mother-in-law!
