Group Topic: To Spank or Not to Spank?

7 ways to tell your children you're getting a divorce, women's support group, Glendora

Could you really spank these kids?

If you recently caught the latest episode of new sitcom “Blackish” then you probably were amused by the difficulty the dad had when deciding whether he would spank his son, as he himself was spanked often as a child. Somehow, spanking didn’t feel right. He wound up having a talk with his son instead and it was effective.

Today, there is truly no reason to spank a child. If your family is communicating about their feelings and needs and thoughts then conversation should be enough to guide your kids to where they need to go and have them understand what you expect from them. Physically come down to your child’s level, perhaps touch them gently on the shoulder and make eye contact. Use a gentle but firm voice when speaking to your child. Show your child respect and they will treat you with respect for the rest of your days…

5 Benefits of Joining the “Single’s Group” in Glendora

Facilitating group therapy for adults in Glendora, Ilissa Banhazl, MFT

Join the Single’s Group Glendora and share stories and ideas!

When you have recently gone through a divorce or the end of a relationship; especially when it’s not your choice, it is understandable that you are going to experience feelings of grief and disorientation. Isolating oneself can intensify feelings of rejection, loneliness and fear.

When you meet with other newly single people in a group experience, you will benefit in these 5 ways.

1. Sharing your story and listening to others helps to normalize your experience and your feelings.

2. Meeting other people who are starting over and looking to accompany a friend to dinner, a movie or a chat over coffee is an important part of moving on.

3. Learning other group member’s perception of you helps to combat self-doubt and brings clarity for your next relationship.

4. Finding camaraderie and humor in group will help to restore your feelings of a hopeful future.

5. Bouncing your ideas off other people and coming back the following week to report on your experience will remind you that you are cared about.

 You don’t have to be divorced to benefit from a singles group.

Men and women who have not yet found their mate, will also benefit from meeting with other singles.

To speak with the Single’s Group facilitator please contact Ilissa Banhazl, MFT at 626-335-0905.
