Setting Limits and Building Co-operation

Wednesday, 21 Oct 2020 7:00 -8:30 PM (1 sessions)

Description
Do you wish your children would just do what you ask? Tired of nagging and fighting? Learn why and gain practical tools for co-operation. It’s important to remember children need limits. The good news is it is possible to set those limits in ways that improve relationships and bring you closer to your child. In this workshop, learn why children test our limits, and how you can best respond without being harsh. This webinar offers a parent-tested practical approach that will equip you with tools to have you parenting better in no time. Come along to learn how limits you set today will help build the good and close relationship you want with your child for the future.

Who is running it?

Madeleine Winter is a parent coach and consultant from Hand in Hand Parenting. She's been working with families for more than 30 years and will show you how to:

  • Build a better connection with your child;
  • Resolve your child's emotional tensions which drive their limit-testing behaviour; and
  • Get support for yourself to be the parent you really want to be.

This online webinar will allow time for us to address questions you may have. It will also be recorded and offered to you as a resource to re-watch and share. If you want to know more after the webinar, Madeleine is offering a FREE 20-minute consultation. If you’re interested, we will provide these details after the webinar.

Body Confident Children & Tweens ​

Tuesday 20 October, 10 -11:15 am (1 sessions) or Tuesday 27 October, 7 -8:15 pm (1 sessions)

Description

This event is targeted at an adult audience. We kindly ask that children do not attend. With so many confusing messages around weight and shape and with many adults struggling with their own body image in can be difficult for parents to know how best to support their child as they move through adolescence. This relaxed and informative seminar for carers of primary and secondary age children gives practical tips to help you better understand and promote positive body image in the home.

Who is running it?

Proudly presented by the City of Canterbury Bankstown and Butterfly Foundation to celebrate Mental Health Month. In this session you will cover:

  • Overview of body image and the importance of prevention
  • The spectrum of body and eating issues
  • Key influence on body image, including social media
  • The impact of diet culture and weight stigma
  • Busting common myths around eating disorders
  • Reducing appearance talk and how to respond when a child expresses negativity towards themselves/others
  • The power of role modelling positive body image and behaviours
  • Understanding warning signs and the importance of early intervention

This online webinar is 1 hour and 15 minutes long. There will be a time for questions and answers.

Engaging Adolescents – (In Vietnamese)

MONDAY 10-11.30 am 26 October and 2 & 9 November (3 sessions)

Description

Learn practical skills to resolve difficult teenage behaviour and help guide them through challenging times with confidence. Parenting can be tricky at the best of times. But when the tough issues arise — such as behavioural problems, unacceptable risk-taking, bullying or alcohol abuse — things can get extremely difficult and parents may struggle with knowing what to do. This workshop provides easy-to-use techniques you can use to help young people manage their own behavioural challenges and emotional reactions. Renew confidence of your role in your child’s life, and learn how to build stronger relationships with them alongside useful strategies to deal with unacceptable behaviour.

Who is running it?

Kim Huynh, from Creating Links, is an experienced Triple P Practitioner. She has been facilitating regular parenting programs for more than 10 years in English and Vietnamese.

To receive a hard copy Course Workbook, please register by Friday 9 October. Later registrations will receive a Course Workbook in Week 1 of the program.
