Kirk Martin, a noted speaker and parent trainer for Celebrate Calm, will present “10 Ways to Change Your Child Overnight” at two trainings on October 18. Martin will share strategies to decrease children’s meltdowns, tantrums, arguing and increase listening, while improving focus and attention. He will also provide tips for transitioning students away from electronics peacefully and creating a stress-free environment for mornings, bedtime and homework time. Along with his son, Casey, Martin will examine the life of parent and child with humor and grace, share their personal experiences, and provide easy-to-implement strategies for creating a “calm” home. Martin will present two identical trainings - one from 9 to 11 a.m. and the other from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Both are open to all Frisco ISD parents and educators and as a courtesy to all, children may not attend. The event is a partnership of Frisco ISD, Frisco ISD Council of PTAs and the SAGE (Special and Gifted Education) committee.
