Synopsis

Psychologists agree that there is an “emotional tank” that needs to be filled in every person. When this emotional tank is filled, there is a higher chance that your child will be more motivated, perform better academically and be of better character. If the tank is not filled, you will get a discouraged, disengaged and ill-disciplined child. Most parents love their children, but may not be able to express love in such a way that is perceived or appreciated as love by their children. Hence, tension and misunderstandings arise in the family.

Parents need to communicate in a way that their children will feel appreciated, recognized and loved, so that they can excel in life and relationships.

In this talk ,the speaker will demonstrate and discuss:
• How the emotional tank relates to your child’s performance and behaviour
• How to fill the emotional tank of your child practically using Positive Strokes and Love Languages specifically
• How to craft Quality Time Activities and include Quality Conversations

Screamfree Parenting

English

Duration

2 hours

Recommended for

Parents of school-going children

Venue requirements

  • Projector, audio system, flip charts or whiteboard, markers
  • Cluster seating (4 in a cluster)

Optimum class size

20 – 40 pax

Synopsis

"The key to good parenting depends on you, because you are the one you can ultimately control," says parenting expert and family therapist, Hal Runkel, LMFT.

Children & teenagers have often felt belittled, disrespected and being put down by their parents when they are being screamed at. This in turn also affects their relationships.

As parents, we don’t like to watch our children make mistakes. Neither do we like having to take the time and energy to enforce the consequences. So we get anxious, we get stressed out and we scream. We may threaten, negotiate or plead. We hope our screaming or our anxiety forces them to behave the way we need them to. When it doesn’t, we get more anxious and scream louder and longer — and then our screaming becomes the consequence itself. This isn’t working and everyone knows it. It also negatively affects our relationship with our children. In addition, no one is learning or growing through this process, but what else can we do?”

In this workshop, we provide you with another parenting solution that will lower your stress level and improve your relationship with your child. In addition, you are still able to get them to behave in the way you need them to.
