The fourth and fifth grade children are in a stage of contradictory transition. They need the help of their parents, but desire for independence at the same time. Parents are often confused on how to communicate with children and how to encourage them to be independent and self-disciplined. For this reason, at 6 p.m. on November 19th, grades four and five invited Ms. Xing Tong, an expert on "positive discipline", and is also a mother of two boys, to give the parents a lecture on how to raise a self-disciplined child.
Ms. Xing started with her successful experience of solving her son's problem of playing mobile games for too long. In order to help the parents better understand the different effects of different communication methods, many parents were invited role play. The lecture also introduced effective ways, such as “four languages of encouragement", to solve the challenges faced by children. These effective strategies will help the parents to cultivate their children into people with great character.
The lecture lasted for two hours, and the parents fully participated in it. They said they had learned a lot and would apply those to their future communication with the children. We hope that all the children can grow into independent and self-disciplined learners.
