Jody McVittie, M.D. - Parenting to Grow Responsibility and Respect: Using discipline to lead instead of manage your children
The Parents Advisory Committee (PAC) of the Bellevue College Parent Education Program presents its annual Spring Lecture on May 14, 2013. Parent educator Jody McVittie, MD, will speak on drawing out the highly effective parent within you. She will be teaching parents of children age birth to seven responsibility and respect while minimizing whining, power struggles and fighting at home.
A native Seattleite, Jody received her BS in Biology from Stanford University and her medical degree from Case Western Reserve University. She completed her family medicine residency and fellowship in California. She worked as a family physician in both California and Washington before shifting to focus on broader community issues that impact all of our health including education, parenting and land use. Jody is the executive director and a co-founder of Sound Discipline. She is a lead trainer for the Positive Discipline Association and co-author of the Positive Discipline Workbook and BRIDGES, Building Relationships for Improved Discipline, Academic Gains and Effective Schools. Her dream is to build healthy communities by teaching parents, teachers and students how to work together in relationships founded on deep mutual respect. Jody is the mother of three young adults who have been some of her best teachers. More information about Jody can be found at www.encouragingsolutions.net.
