LEONARDTOWN, MD –  On Thursday, January 26, 2023, there will be a Conscious Discipline Parent and Childcare Provider Workshop from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the St. Mary’s County Library, Leonardtown Branch, at 23630 Hayden Farm Lane in Leonardtown, Maryland 20650 (Meeting Room 1). Conscious Discipline Master Trainer, Amy Speidel, returns to St. Mary's County Public Schools (SMCPS) to present another helpful workshop for SMCPS Pre-Kindergarten families and childcare providers. This workshop is titled, “Conscious Discipline Calming Strategies for Parents and Providers,” and participating and registered providers are able to receive Core of Knowledge training credit through MSDE for this workshop.

Participants will learn how adults can teach self-regulation by modeling their own ability to manage in difficult situations. There will be time to learn an “I Love You” ritual to share with your child(ren) and an opportunity to ask questions.  Parents/childcare providers need to register here.  Childcare will not be available for this workshop.

Please contact Ms. Lynn Trehern, Early Childhood Instructional Resource Teacher/Coach, at pltrehern@smcps.org if you have a question regarding this workshop.
