Session 1: Introduction to resilient parenting
What is resilience. The ages and stages for developing resilience in our children. How the brain works and the importance of negative and positive emotions.
Session 2: Optimism during uncertainty
This session explores the link between what we think, how we feel, and how we behave. Flexible and realistic thinking lies at the heart of resilience, it enables us to do the ‘right’ thing at the right time, so we achieve the best possible outcome. Optimism wedded to reality.
Session 3: Developing the mental muscle
Helping our children gain more control over how they feel and behave. Reframing unhelpful choices, and developing empathy for self and others, so we can navigate uncertainty and learn to fail well.
Session 4: Compassionate communication
Effective communication is essential as our children move into adolescence. We can find ourselves in cycles of nagging and bickering and focusing on the ‘big’ conversations, and with it, we become disconnected. Resilience and compassion are the keys to staying connected.
Session 5: Mindsets and Energy
Nurturing and developing a growth mindset in our children. Understanding the psychological link between energy, emotions and behaviour.
Session 6: Parenting to strengths
Identifying the unique strengths of our children and us – and how to use them to best effect.
