Three Part Lecture Series on Supporting Your Children in Challenging Times

You are invited to Part II of a three part series presented by Dr. Mazius and the North Shore Center.  The series is focused on supporting children in challenging times.   Part II - Setting the Stage for Autonomy and Success: How Parents Can Use Technology to Foster Independence at School will be held in the JLMS Library at 7:00pm, Thursday, December 6. 

During Part I, Dr. Mazius shared strategies to help parents balance the natural desire to protect children and the students need for independence.   Parents learned that a rewards and punishment system only works to change a child’s behavior in the short term.  Dr. Mazius educated parents on how to build a child’s intrinsic motivation in order to impact long-term success.  

Building Intrinsic Motivation

  1. Provide children time to do things forthemselves.
  2. Listen to your child (give them a voice).
  3. Let children fail in order to learn how to succeed (provide scaffolds for success and let children try on their own).
  4. Pay attention to the degree we control children.
