Parenting is a 24/7 relationship that is both a wonderful privilege and a demanding role that challenges parents at every level of their identity and internal resources.
C3 Church Carlingford is running Tuning in to Kids™over 5 weeks for parents/carers of children from Preschool to Primary School. We have 2 trained facilitators running the course: Linda is a Karitane Nurse and mother, and Jane is a teacher and a mother of two children in primary school.
Tuning in to Kids™ is a parenting program that helps children learn to understand and regulate their emotions. Previous research has found that parenting styles can influence a child’s emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand and control your emotions, as well as being able to communicate to others about how you feel. Children with good emotional intelligence often have better emotional, social, and physical functioning, as well as fewer behavioural difficulties.
Tuning in to Kids™ involves watching video material, group discussions and exercises, role plays, reading information, and home activities where you try out different ways of responding to your child’s emotions. Parents are encouraged to share experiences and ideas within the group and group leaders may use these as examples to explain and teach the skills of emotion coaching.
We look forward to meeting you at Tuning in to Kids™.
The cost for Tuning In To Kids is $50 per family/couple/individual for the entire course, or $10 per session, which includes afternoon tea, all resources & childcare if required.
