Linda Aber is a certified Nurtured Heart®, Theraplay®, HeartMath® Anxiety, Stress & Anger Reduction Practitioner, Attachment Parent Coach, Family Life Educator and proud adoptive parent. For over 20 years she has provided parent coaching, parent educational workshops, social skills & social thinking groups for The Montreal Centre for Learning Disabilities to families living with ADHD, LD, Mild Autism Spectrum, Defiant, mood, adoption and attachment disorders. Linda presents to educators in various Montreal schools as well as (QPAT) the Quebec Teachers Conference. Empowerment of parents and educaters is Linda’s passion. She inspires to bring out the best in adults, so they can bring out the best in their children and students.
When children/teens become anxious, reactive or argumentative, the #1 mistake parents make is to use demand & command communication scripts. This reactive approach triggers both youth & adults adding fuel to the fire. In this lecture Linda will introduce strategies to take the difficult parenting moments, when you are simply trying to survive, and turn them into opportunities for your children to thrive. She will share the “heart-brain connection” that will empower parents with effective insights plus tools to help end the yelling and power struggles.
