PLEASE NOTE: No Childcare is Provided.
If they are interested to learn more, there will be a limited number of places in a 6 week evening Course which will start on Monday 7th May 2012. There is a charge for the course - please contact me if you need more information.
As a service provider and supporter of families, you would also be welcome to attend the Introductory Evening. It will give you a deeper understanding of our work with children and families. We are available to provide courses and would be happy to talk with you about how we can structure something to suit the needs of your families. Please do feel free to contact us.
Our work is based on the work of Patty Wipfler and Hand in Hand Parenting. The Hand in Hand web site is a great source of useful perspectives and information on a range of challenges in parenting and caring for young children and I encourage you to have a look at it: http://www.handinhandparenting.org
Here is a brief outline of the Introductory Evening:
Do you wonder how to:
• Stay close to your children?
• Solve problems within your family?
• Set effective limits for your children?
• Help your children learn?
• Deal with tantrums,crying and other challenging behaviours?
Come along to hear about the Parenting by Connection approach to these and many other common parenting challenges. We offer practical ways to improve family life – useful for when things are going fine, and invaluable for when things are tough. You can get support as you decide what advice makes sense, make plans for your parenting and put them into action. Parenting by Connection helps put your relationship with your child at the centre, and uses play and listening to help strengthen your family, build close connection, and assist you to handle the difficulties which come up - for yourself and your children.
Thanks and kind regards,
Listening to Children Through Play
