Sleepless nights, terrible tantrums and everything sticky! Weâ€™ve been there, too, and we know it can be a lonely, exhausting place and sometimes seems endless. If you can get away from your responsibilities for a few hours a week youâ€™d like the opportunity to share the challenges and joys with other parents and explore new ways to make life with young children more rewarding and fun both for you and your family.
This course is similar in content to SHEPâ€™s Family Communication course and focuses on developing positive communication with the younger child.
Topics will be explored in a personal way so that parents can become more aware of how they communicate in their families. The following topics may be covered:
- Communication and listening
- The developmental needs of children
- Having fun together
- Self-esteem for all the family
- The good enough parentâ€™
- Love and limits
- Resolving conflict
- The needs of the parent
