"Too often we forget that the word discipline means to teach - not to punish. A disciple is a student, not the recipient of a behavioral consequence”

- Dan Siegel

Many times when asked “How do you discipline your children?” typical answers include things like timeout, restrictions and spankings. What we forget is that those are actually punishments - meant to cause pain and discomfort with the idea that it will curb future behavior. Unfortunately, the result of punishments ultimately are rebellion, resentment, retreat and revenge.

Join MegAnne Ford for this evening of discussion and interactive activities. We will reclaim the word discipline and focus in on ways to discipline your children for the traits we ultimately want to see!

About the Presenter

MegAnne Ford, CPC CPDPE

While studying psychology at VCU, MegAnne Ford fell in love with figuring out how the mind worked. Focusing on positive connection and healthy attachment really drew her in, igniting her passion for working with all different kinds of people!

Over the years, she has worked with well over 500 different children in a variety of life stages and situations. She thrives when building sustaining relationships with the families she works with and loves seeing all the successes over the years! This is what inspired her to become a certified life and parent coach and start Be Kind Coaching.

Throughout the years she has always worked on building unique families’ goals. These goals include where they’d like to see themselves in the future, then building a strategy that will get them there. This can look like reducing yelling inside the home around certain instances, potty training your children, or developing morning/evening routines. She loves working 1:1 with parents, children, teens to get them to the place in life that they wish to be but may be having a hard time achieving on their own. MegAnne believes coaching is about building a relationship of trust together and working together to build a more positive relationship between your family.
