This is to let you know that there will be a FREE Workshop for fathers, mothers and other carers of children aged 0-8 is coming up next term - 11th May. I would appreciate it if you would let the families and services you work with know about it.
The Workshop will give parents and carers an introduction to the Parenting by Connection approach to handling short separations from their children. Participants will learn practical ways to turn parting into a positive experience that builds a child's confidence and joy in life. They will gain an understanding of why children get upset about separations, and how to prepare for and handle those times, and how to get support for themselves.
As a service provider and supporter of families, you would also be welcome to attend also. It will give you a deeper understanding of our work with children and families. We are also 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.
