Three Guest Speakers at Mid Isle.

PHILIPSBURG:—-This week The Rotary Club of St. Maarten-Mid Isle had the opportunity to have three guest speakers to join them at their weekly meeting, Sanjana Manek of St. Maarten Foundation for Psychologists and Orthopedagogen and from Heineken John leone and Regatta Director Michelle van der Werff.

In light of Peace and Conflict Prevention/Resolution month in the Rotary calendar for February Sanjana Manek of the St. Maarten Foundation for Psychologists and Orthopedagogen knew as SFPO presented a summary of the principles of the nonviolent resistance (NVR) training.

One of the key principles focuses on increasing the self-control of parents, therefore, avoiding escalation. In addition, the two usual escalation responses were mentioned. It was also suggested that parents be aware of the instances that can lead to an escalation in the home. This parent training aims to provide many tools and techniques to parents.

SFPO is continuing the project entitled, “Restoring Parental Authority”, and is looking for parents with children aged 8-12 years who are frustrated with their child’s behavior.
