Raising Non-Violent Children & Teens

In our latest on-demand video series, Raising Non-Violent Children & Teens: Strategies for Families & Caregivers, Karen A. Waldron, PhD, Professor Emerita and retired Director of Special Education at Trinity University, San Antonio, Texas, discusses how the recent, tragic school shootings in Connecticut and across the country are a reminder of the fragile nature of childhood and the potential impact of growing up in a violent society.

This 6-part series focuses on raising non-violent children and teens, and includes:

  • Practical, daily strategies for families and caregivers to use in re-directing at-risk youth to healthy personal and social behaviors.
  • Ways to teach children and teens compassion and empathy, transitioning them from a sense of helplessness and anti-social behaviors to one of helpfulness in supporting, rather than hurting, others.
  • Techniques to replace anger with competence and self-esteem.
  • Specific strategies to manage children’s and teens’ daily use of technology.
  • Ways to avoid the misuse of social media, including preventing and countering the impact of cyber-bullying.
