1-2-3 Magic and Emotion Coaching Workshop

Are you struggling to manage your child’s behaviour? Is the yelling, arguing, whining and tantrums causing angst, and your discipline just not working?

The 1-2-3 Magic & Emotion Coaching program aims to teach parents how to deal with their children’s difficult behaviour by using an easy-to-learn and easy-to-use signalling system.  The program requires the parent to use less talk and less emotion, which in turn encourages the development of children’s ability to manage their emotional reactions to parental boundaries.

Over three weekly sessions, you will be guided through this proven and effective program, and supported to learn how to manage behaviour, develop a tangible and intuitive strategy to master your own self-control, encourage your child’s ability to manage their own emotional reactions, and improve your relationship with your child.  

Topics include:

  • How to discipline without arguing, yelling or smacking
  • How to sort behaviour
  • How to handle challenging and testing behaviours
  • Choosing your strategy, the three choices
  • Using emotion coaching to encourage good behaviour
  • 7 tactics for encouraging good behaviour

Investing a few hours now, will create a valuable roadmap for navigating those challenging parenting situations.

Best suited to:

Parents and carers of children aged 2 to 12 years.  The program is particularly effective if both parents attend.
