Westerly School, Long Beach’s premier independent, non-secretarian school, will host a dynamic seminar entitled, “You Can’t Make Me: How To End Power Struggles” with Melody Creighton. The event is geared toward parents and aims to assist parents in communicating with their children to create a more peaceful home environment. This free event, sponsored by the Westerly School PTO, is open to the public. Complimentary childcare will be provided for school age children to parents that RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 7th. This Parent Education Night will be held on Thursday, February 9th, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Westerly School, 2950 East 29th Street, Long Beach.
Ms. Creighton will discuss the four basic emotional needs of children and how parents can help meet those needs. She will explain how a child’s behavior, along with parental reactions, can help identify a child’s emotional needs. Have you ever wondered how you play a role in this “tug-of-war” with your children? Is it possible for parents to prevent future power struggles? These questions, along with many others, will be answered during this dynamic discussion.
Ms. Creighton began her teaching career locally at Chadwick School after spending eight years with the Manhattan Beach Unified School District. Ms. Creighton is a graduate of Ohio State University and has continued her education at University California Los Angeles. For the past 16 years she has been guiding parents to help create a respectful, cooperative, and joyful home environment.
