There are three seminars in the series:
The Power of Positive Parenting: Ever wondered: “Why does my child do that?” This seminar helps you understand the reasons kids do what they do, so you can guide their behaviour – and see more of the behaviour you like, and less of the behaviour you don’t like.
Raising Confident, Competent Children: Help your child become confident and feel good about themselves. Find out ways to encourage them to be respectful and considerate, and to communicate and get on well with others.
Raising Resilient Children: Get the strategies you need so you can help your child manage their emotions and deal with disappointment and stressful situations in a healthy way.
Help children develop their own toolkit of coping skills to overcome anxiety. Break the cycle of anxiety and avoidance, in a safe and gradual way. Understand what’s within your control to change. Improve your relationship with your children. Enjoy being a parent more!
