Help! I'm A Parent

23rd June 2020
DO YOU WANT TO PARENT BETTER? Healthier and happier parents bring up healthier and happier kids.

OVERVIEW:

Parenting if a tough gig. Even more so in these uncertain times.

The COVID-19 restrictions have forced us to consider different ways to provide support to local families. This started a conversation with parents around accessibility to parenting programs. Onsite programs have limited access for many - if there's no child minding facilities or family close by to help out, or, for working parents getting to something during the day is near impossible, and nights are dedicated to the little time you have with your children. With that said, Gawler Youth and Dr Naomi Rutten are launching a series of conversational style online video's that will be placed on YouTube. This will allow you to watch these when suits you and at your own pace. Sessions will provide parents education and support, enhance your parenting skills with practical evidence based tools. In addition, through a private Facebook group you have the ability to ask questions which will be integrated in future sessions.

TOPICS INCLUDE:

  • Understanding Child Brain Development
  • How does your child's brain grow
  • The importance of mindfulness
  • Messaging
  • Children's emotional development
  • Impact of personality, gender and culture
