Use Parent Education to Tune In To Your Kids
Emotionally Intelligent Parenting
Tuning in to Kids and Tuning in to Teens are both six week experiential, skills based programs that make a positive difference to a child’s development. In a warm, supportive environment parents learn the skills of how to help develop emotional intelligence in their children.
Why is Emotional Intelligence important?
Children with greater emotional intelligence have been shown to:
- have greater success with making and keeping friends and be able to manage conflict with peers
- concentrate better at school, leading to greater academic success
- be more able to calm themselves (self soothe) when upset or angry
- tend to have lower levels of stress, resulting in fewer childhood illnesses
- have more stable and satisfying relationships as adults
- have greater career success . . . emotional intelligence may be a better predictor of academic and career success than IQ
These practical programs contain researched, evidence based approaches that teach parents how to develop emotional intelligence in themselves and their child.
This is What participants are saying about Tuning in to Kids:
Since beginning the Tuning in to Kids Program I’ve already noticed a difference in both myself and my kids. Being more aware of both their emotions and the way I respond, has meant we’ve had fewer “melt downs”, and more meaningful conversations about the way we relate to each other and people outside our family. I’m looking forward to continuing to practice some of the techniques I’ve learned. I really recommend participating if you have the opportunity.
I have found this course to be very beneficial to the relationship with my child. I now think before I discipline my child and I believe we have become closer as a result. My child has a better understanding of his emotions and this will only improve the more I use the coaching techniques. The course has been very interesting and informative and I highly recommend it to all parents.
Having the opportunity to undertake the Tuning into Kids program is one I am so grateful for. The course has been presented in a way that is enjoyable, informative and interesting. It has made me more aware of how I parent our children and also encouraged me to be a little more patient when dealing with certain situations. We have also learnt some great tips to achieve a better outcome when parenting, as well as realising the importance of self care, which as a Mum you often neglect.
Each week I gained greater confidence in using emotion coaching with my children. It was really rewarding to be able to put these newly acquired skills into practice and see the positive effect it had on my children’s behaviour.
If you have the opportunity to undertake this course, I would thoroughly recommend it!
