Bringing Up Great Kids - A mindful parenting program

Using the metaphor of ‘Messages’ as the program platform, parents are encouraged to explore and reflect upon messages they received from their own experience of being parented.
The program uses mindful reflection to support parents to:

  1. Review and enhance their patterns of communication with their children;
  2. Promote more respectful interactions; and,
  3. Encourage the development of children’s positive self-identity.

Parents learn about the brain development of their children and understand how to meet their children’s growing needs.  The program draws from child-centred and strengths-based perspectives, neurobiological development, attachment theory and narrative approaches.

7-9pm Thursday evenings, this program runs for for 6 weeks.
