On Thursday, September 24th, Fortress YDC had a record night. Twenty-five adults, representing 16 Fortress families, attended an Equip Parenting class, the largest turnout for a parenting class in Fortress history. It is safe to say that the Love & Logic Discipline techniques class was a big success! Participants learned about the different discipline techniques used by Fortress to guide kids towards making better choices, including 8 tips to use when disciplining at home. After the presentation, the parents enjoyed a spaghetti dinner, made by the lovely ladies of the Fort Worth Junior League. After dinner, Junior League volunteers joined the participants to engage in a Q&A with presenters Cori and Jason Brown about what they’d learned and how they might be able to apply those principles to real-life situations they’ve encountered at home with their children.
The 8 principles presented by Cori and Jason Brown were:
- Building Positive Relationships
- Setting Limits
- Neutralizing Arguing
- Using Choices
- The Recovery Process
- Delayed Consequences
- Guiding Children to Own and Solve their Own Problems
