Parenting for Independence Recording Available

As a Parent, you have a responsibility to ensure you assist your child to develop into independent citizens who are ready to leave home when the time is right. 

It starts early with small steps – having children help you with the daily tasks. Tasks might take longer, they may even mess it up and this is all part of the very important learning process.

In this session, you will hear about...

  • ways to encourage helpful helpers,
  • how to let go of perfectionism
  • strategies to foster a 'pitch-in' mindset
  • ways to praise your child to increase responsibility & independence
  • how to put more fun back into parenting. 

Teaching Responsibility Thursday 7th April 8pm

As part of the journey to adulthood, teaching your child to take responsibility is essential. Taking responsibility for your actions, mistakes and behaviour is one of the most significant steps to becoming an adult.

In this webinar we will explore...

  • what responsibility means at different age levels
  • a responsibility framework for you and your family
  • ways to promote responsibility
  • how to stop rescuing and start empowering
  • how to use an 'inconvenience tax' to highlight responsibilities

Creating Family Traditions Thursday 5th May 8pm

One of the most treasured heirlooms we can create as parents are the memories and traditions we pass down to our children. Memories and traditions reinforce your values and create stability (the roots) of safety as well as strengthen family bonds.

In this session we will look at...

  • developing your own family rites of passage
  • ways to regularly connect with your child
  • creating school holiday challenges - including the 'no tech' challenge
  • strategies to make dinner time a positive and even fun family time
  • dealing with pocket money and other big parenting decisions.

Boundaries, Expectations & Rewards Thursday 26th May 8pm

Holding appropriate rules and boundaries is a key responsibility for parents. The clearer the boundaries, the freer your child can be to develop and grow.

In this session we will delve into...

  • the difference between punishment and discipline
  • how to pick your battles
  • why children push boundaries
  • reasons to develop a secret code
  • appropriate rewards at differing ages and stages

Relationships - You, Your Partner - Your Child Thursday 9th June 8pm

Parenting can be an all consuming time and losing who you are and your connections with both your partner and child can be heart breaking.

  • setting yourself up for success on a daily basis
