As parents we are pretty clear on the basics of raising physically healthy children, (nutrition, exercise, sleep, hygiene). But we receive relatively little information about supporting children’s emotional health. This is unfortunate because emotional health is key to living a stable, happy and successful life. In the absence of guidance we as parents tend to flip between two positions. We either discount our children’s emotions or give in to them. This workshop will help you discover the middle ground, assisting your children to understand and communicate their emotional needs.
