As licensees of The Parent Practice, we offer a ten week Positive Parenting Course and a five week Positive Parenting Core Skills Course.
Our five week course covers modules 1-5, our 10 week course includes all modules.
Module 1 - Descriptive Praise: How to develop your child's motivation, co-operation and confidence using Descriptive Praise.
Module 2 - Emotion Coaching: Improve your emotional bond with your children, encourage communication and good behaviour by understanding and helping children manage their emotions more effectively.
Module 3 - Setting up for Success: How to make home life more harmonious and reduce stressful moments.
Module 4 - Values, Rules and Rewards: How to formulate, communicate and follow through on rules consistently in ways that pass on the values you want for your children and encourage cooperation while preserving a child’s individuality.
Module 5 - Positive Discipline: How to respond constructively to unwanted behaviours in ways that teach children to take responsibility and learn from their mistakes without damaging self-esteem.
Module 6 - Fostering independence and encouraging good habits: Apply the skills to train your children in those attributes that you think would benefit them as adults. Training children to be more self-reliant boosts their confidence hugely as well as giving them skills for life.
Module 7 - Being in Charge: Explore how to authoritative without being over controlling and how to discipline effectively in positive ways which encourage children to learn, not to fear.
Module 8 - Fostering good relationships between siblings and other children: Look at ways to foster positive relationships between children, siblings and friends, and ways of resolving conflict constructively.
Module 9 - Keeping Calm: How to structure your life so that you can access your positive parenting skills when faced with provocative behaviour. Assess whether your expectations of your children are realistic by reference to stages of development and temperament.
Module 10 - What to do when your children push your buttons: When our buttons have been pushed our skills go out the window and we respond to our children's behaviour in ineffective ways. Learn how to recognise and defuse your buttons so you can react appropriately in the face of 'button-pushing' behaviour.
