The presentation will discuss challenges of child rearing and what research has offered to help and that make a practical difference in the home, at school, and in everyday life. Key concepts and techniques will be presented and illustrated to convey how they work and provide guidelines of what to do when they fail. Many familiar concepts and procedures (e.g., praise and punishment) and unfamiliar ones as well (e.g., setting events, use of practice simulations in the home) provide novel what-to-do and how-to-do-it tools that can make parenting more effective and life easier for parents and children.
The language of the event will be English, with simultaneous translation into Chinese.
