This course, for parents, is a pathway for learning how to notice our patterns of parenting, to consider their efficacy and to learn strategies for working with the thoughts, feelings, and reactions that can get us stuck in our relationship with our kids.
We will: investigate the role of empathy in parenting and develop skills in giving empathy; look at the value of using observations; explore the power of making requests rather than demands; work with hearing ‘no’ (which may be a pre-verbal ‘no’); and learn about Nonviolent Communication as an approach to parenting.
10am – 1:00pm
Location: Black Hill, NSW (30 mins from Newcastle, 1 1/2hrs from Sydney)
** The Follow-up Day is intended for people who have attended an Intro Day or one of Kara’s other Mindful Parenting Courses.
“Hi Kara, Just wanted to let you know Ben & I really enjoyed the session on Sunday and felt like we both got so much out of it. Your energy is incredibly inspiring.
I have become more aware of the way I communicate and react in various situations, and am working on recognising that all needs are equal and using better strategies to get all needs met respectfully. It will be a habit-changing process, but the first step is in place! Thank you.”
