Positive Parenting for Toddlers Workshop
Nov 16, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm£50
Positive Parenting for Toddlers Workshop ( suitable for parents of toddlers ages 1-4 ( not at school )
Hello there, my name is Catherine and I want to share with you my 31 years experience in the NHS and 19 years of experience working with children and families in Specialist Services ( Camhs) with emotional and behavioural difficulties. I am a mum too and like you survived all the ups and downs, frustrations from baby to adulthood. I am passionate about empowering parents to transform their frustration, confusion, and self-doubt in their parenting into confidence and joy.
Right now, you may :
- Be lost in information and doubt your parenting a lot?
- Wonder why your toddler is having big feelings such as tantrums or meltdowns, can be really anxious and does not want to leave your side sometimes?
- Feel like a mean parent and fed up of saying no all the time
- Wonder why they kick, hit or bite and you don’t know what to do sometimes?
- Want to learn more calm and gentle techniques to enable secure attachments and manage big feelings?
- Want to Learn some Positive Discipline skills that you can take forward all their development
If you said yes, then the workshop is for you and we will share:
- Common misconceptions about toddler behaviour and an explanation with some simple neuroscience
- How to build a strong and secure foundation for your toddler to thrive.
- The characteristics of “normal” development.
- Your toddler’s temperament and developing attachment style and how to work with it, not against it.
- Gentle and calm techniques to manage difficult situations and big feelings ( the different types of tantrums and other behaviours such as biting, hitting, throwing and Separation Anxiety)
- Confidence and more empowerment in trusting your instincts in order to tackle everyday challenges and set limits whilst maintaining your calm.
- The true purpose of play, the power of praise and how 10 minutes a day of effective play can promote self-regulation.
No more than 9 parents attend ( parents only). They are small and intimate. In my experience ( and feedback) a smaller group enables you to ask questions, share and feel safe.
