Positive Parenting – Child to Pre-Teen

Brief summary of program purpose

Parenting has always come with its own unique challenges and never more so than the present. 

Raise awareness of your own or your children’s possible responses to the stress and worry that has come from living with COVID-19 restrictions and the many challenges it has brought with it. Learn about different parenting styles and the role of communication, compassion and ‘sensitive parenting skills’ in raising resilient children. 

Over three weekly sessions, you will be guided through this solutions-based program and supported to address individual concerns effectively.

Topics include:

  • Understanding brain development, the fear response and age-appropriate behaviour

    • Connecting thoughts, feelings, behaviour and body sensations

What you will learn:
