Explore what happens to children when their feelings are denied and discuss ways to accept their feelings and limit their behavior.
Explore what happens in dependent relationships and look at ways to help children become independent.
Examine why punishments don't always work and study effective ways to resolve dailly conflict constructively.
Experience how children react to threats, lectures, etc. and practice tools that leave both parent and child feeling good about themselves and each other.
Discuss how praise and self-image are related and exercise ways to praise effectively.
Analyze how children are cast into roles and apply skills that can help them see themselves in a different light.
The workshop is composed of three sessions. Each session focuses on two topics with time to discuss how to apply everything learned on real situations.
The communication skills learned in this workshop can be applied to people of all ages. However, the next round of the workshop will be focused on parents with teenagers.
Hi! I’m Denise. I became a certified “How to Talk so Kids Will Listen” workshop facilitator after hearing about a study that showed training parents based on this workshop promoted children’s mental health.
Reading this study couldn’t have come at better time. After sharing with other parents the ups and downs of parenthood, I realized how much I enjoyed listening to their experiences and providing them with different resources to help them feel calmer and more confident in what they are doing. I want to help fellow parents to become the parents they want to be. A lot of times, we have this idealized version of the parent we want to be, but then life (and children) get in the way.
This is why I was so happy to come across this workshop. It brings the theory into practice. It gives parents hand-on, everyday tools they can easily apply to their families. It also understands that we are human beings; we have our good days and our bad days, and that’s okay.
