Chaffee County Early Childhood Council (CCECC) has announced a Conscious Discipline Virtual Parent Night with Amy Speidel. The event is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 25.

The session will cover “Building Self-Regulation and Resiliency From the Ground Up.” This includes what might get in the way, walking through different challenges from start to finish, what to do in the moment, and what to practice to achieve a different outcome. The event will explore reinforcing learning so children can eventually manage their own emotions and responsibilities.

There is a registration cap of 40 participants. Residents of Chaffee County and the state of Colorado are prioritized. Interested participants can register online here.

According to, “The Conscious Discipline methodology is based in scientific and developmental research. The evidence-based program integrates social and emotional learning (SEL), resiliency, self-regulation, school culture and schoolwide discipline.”

“It takes a unique ‘adult first, child second’ approach in which adults first shift their mindsets and upgrade their skill sets, then organically teach SEL skills to children through everyday interactions and activities. Adults and children also co-create safe, connected and equitable school environments where every student can achieve their full potential.”

The CCECC is a nonprofit that provides resources serving Chaffee County families with kids prenatal through age eight.
