Adding these skills to your parenting toolkit will help your parenting to be more joyful and less stressful!
Learn 5 major parenting skills that are useful from the time children begin to talk until teen years. At the same time you will meet other parents from your area, chat with them about similar issues you might be having, and find out what worked for them.
Taking care of children is probably the most important job there is, moulding their little lives & teaching the best care that we know they deserve.
We will focus on:
- CAN DO
- RESPECTING FEELINGS
Parents influence their children’s behaviour and children affect parents’ behaviour. This workshop will help parents change their children’s behaviour by showing the adults how to change their own behaviour.
The underlying goal of this workshop is to demonstrate to participants that parents and children are on the same team and that a cooperative, caring relationship is the basis of a strong family and is the best way for parents to guide their children’s behaviour. Interaction between parents will be encouraged. It’s always helpful to hear ideas from other parents who face situations similar to yours, solutions others came up with, and in general it’s good to know you are not alone with some of the issues you face as a parent.
Come join us! Add your input and help liven up our discussions! It promises to be fun and thought provoking!
Light refreshments will be served.
The cost is £8 if you pay in advance online or £10 at the door.
Free copy of "Motivated" Magazine, featuring "Parenting from the Heart" for the first Positive Parent to arrive.
Note: Babies who will sit still and quiet (is that possible?)in their pram, seat or mum's arms are welcome. Unfortunately toddlers or crawlers will find the meetup extremely boring and might be disruptive. Anyone who brings a baby to the meetup is responsible to take them out of the room if they become disruptive.
