‘How to talk so children will do what they’re asked!’ (March 19th)
One of the biggest challenges for parents of young children is getting children to do what they’re asked, when they’re asked. Children have lots of strategies to avoid co-operation – ignoring you, complaining, running away, saying ‘No’, back chatting, and tantrums. Parents can find themselves in constant debates or in perpetual nagging mode. Or resorting to threats and shouting because they seem to be the only things that work. But why don’t children just do what they’re asked?! This seminar explores the reasons behind children’s non-cooperation and looks at smart strategies parents can use to turn things around. How can we motivate children to want to co-operate? And how can we give instructions to children in a way that maximises the chances of them complying? You will get practical tips on:
- how to talk to your children so that they are more likely to do what you ask
- ways you can encourage your children to co-operate with your requests more often (without delaying, whining or making you count to three!)
- how to stay calm and respond consistently when children don’t co-operate
This workshop will be delivered by Anita Cleare and is suitable for parents of children aged 2-9yrs. Places are strictly limited. Live Online Masterclass March 19th 2020 8.00-8.45pm (UK) Please note: This session is being offered at a special discount price as it is a trial run for our new webinar software. Book here.
‘A Stress-free Morning Routine‘ (April 22nd)
Getting children out of the house on time can be a working parent’s nightmare. That train won’t wait for toddler tantrums, lost homework or last minute costume requests! Morning pressures can make parents stressed and irritable and even minor misbehaviour is more difficult to handle. And parenting strategies that work at other times of the day are often ineffective when up against a deadline. So what can parents do to develop a stress-free morning routine? This seminar outlines the common parenting traps that parents can fall into and offers practical and effective measures to prevent and deal with problems in the mornings. Suitable for parents/carers of children aged 1-10 years. Live Online Masterclass April 22nd 8.00pm (UK) Booking opens soon
‘How to walk in the house ready to parent after a day at work’ (May 19th)
Being a calm, connected, consistent parent after a long day at work isn’t easy. Good parenting means standing your ground when children push at boundaries. It means tuning in to your child and managing your emotions (even though your child hasn’t yet mastered theirs). That’s a big ask at the end of the day when you might only have an hour to spend with your child. Arriving home after a day at work in the right frame of mind to parent is key. And for many of us, that involves learning how to be two different people on the same day. This seminar is full of practical can-do tips and strategies to help working parents make family evenings a little happier, including:
- Switching from Work-me to Parent-me
- Making space for attention and playfulness
- Establishing positive routines
Suitable for parents/carers of children aged 1-10yrs. Live Online Masterclass May 19th 8.00pm (UK) Hold the date!
