RIE Approach – Peaceful Toddler Workshop


Date: October 8, 2018 – October 10, 2018

Time: 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM

Venue: UP Institute for Small-Scale Industries, UP Diliman Quezon City

Speaker: Deborah Carlisle Solomon

Many struggles between adults and young children can be avoided when the adult understands how to set limits with confidence and calm — whether the challenge is a toddler who pushes or hits, defiantly ignores the rules, or gets in and out of bed multiple times before settling down to sleep.

This popular workshop is not just theoretical. It provides practical ways to prevent undesirable behaviors and offers participants simple yet effective tools they can use when these behaviors happen.

Participants will learn to respond to children in ways that create more successful outcomes and greater peace and harmony, in the family and in the classroom.

The workshop addresses how to create a cooperative relationship with babies and toddlers, and covers common issues related to setting limits, sleep and more. Multiple topics will be covered, including what to do when a child:
• hits
• bites
• has a tantrum
• defies limits
• has a conflict with another child
• resists sleep

You’ll learn about setting limits with clarity and resolving conflicts without losing your cool.

Many parenting struggles somehow relate to a lack of clarity in setting limits – whether the issue is a toddler who pushes or hits, defiantly ignores the rules, or pops in and out of bed multiple times before settling down to sleep.

If you’re experiencing these or other sorts of limit-setting-related challenges, there are effective ways to respond!

About RIE®

Resources for Infant Educarers® (RIE®) was founded in 1978 by infant specialist and educator Magda Gerber and pediatric neurologist Tom Forrest, M.D. RIE is an international, non-profit organization based in Los Angeles, USA, dedicated to improving the quality of infant care and education around the globe.

Educaring® Approach

Incorporating a deep respect and appreciation of the baby as more than a helpless object, Magda Gerber’s Educaring® Approach supports infants to develop a sense of trust and security, learn to problem solve, and embrace their ability for confident self- discovery and self-reliance. When allowed to unfold in their own way and in their own time, children discover and inspire the best in themselves and in others.

In order to foster quality care, the Educaring® Approach encourages:

• Basic trust in the child to be an initiator, an explorer and a self-learner
• An environment for the child that is physically safe, cognitively challenging and emotionally nurturing
• Time for uninterrupted play
• Freedom to explore and interact with other infants
• Involvement of the child in all care activities to allow the child to become an active participant rather than a passive recipient
• Sensitive observation of the child in order to understand his or her needs
• Consistency, clearly defined limits and expectations to develop discipline

Rate: Php15,000 per person
