Dealing with Disobedience in Preschoolers

Dealing with Disobedience in Preschoolers

Do you have a child aged between 3 and 5 who frequently ignores your instructions, acts defiant, or answers back? Researchers at the Parenting and Family Support Centre are offering the opportunity to take part in a one-off 2-hour Triple P discussion group which has been designed to help parents manage disobedient and non-compliant behaviour.

The discussion group is presented by trained psychologists in a group discussion format. Both mothers and fathers are encouraged to attend. The discussion group will teach parents about positive parenting and effective strategies for managing disobedient and non-compliant behaviour. Parents will be given the chance to practice strategies in session, and to develop an implementation plan tailored for their family. There are no costs associated with participation and parents will be allowed to keep all discussion group resources. Groups will be held at the Parenting and Family Support Centre, St Lucia. Parents will be asked to complete questionnaires as part of the study.

Times and dates of the groups will be determined once enough parents have registered to take part, but will run on evenings or weekends from June to August.

For more information or to register for the study please contact Amy Little on (07) 3365 7307 or email amy.little2@uqconnect.edu.au
