Stickers, Charts and Stars: What Works to Motivate Our Kids?

As parents, we’ve all been there — nagging our kids to finish their homework, help out around the house, or do the simplest of tasks. It can drive us crazy, and it’s hard on the kids, too.

Is there anything we can do?

On Thursday, April 6 at 6pm, the Edison PTA presents guest speaker Dr. Monique Germone, who will give a talk titled “Stickers, Charts, and Stars: Can These Really Work to Help My Child?” It’s a free community event, so come hear tips on how to face these challenges!

Dr. Germone, PhD, BCBA, is a licensed clinical psychologist and board-certified behavior analyst at the Pediatric Mental Health Institute and the Colorado Center for Celiac Disease at Children’s Hospital Colorado, and an assistant professor with the University of Colorado School of Medicine. She has over 10 years of experience working with children and families dealing with a wide variety of behavioral and emotional concerns. Her specialties also include using behavioral strategies to help children living with autism spectrum disorder, and children who have celiac disease.

The event runs from 6 to 7pm in the Edison auditorium, and the talk is free and open to members of our community as well as Edison parents, staff, and supporters. Please come hear tips and tricks for motiving our kids on homework and chores, and tell your family and friends, too!
