Parenting Advice: 50 Solutions for 50 Parenting Problems

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

Many people working with families find themselves called on to give advice on a whole range of issues: How do I get my baby to sleep? What should I do when my toddler throws a tantrum? How do I get my pre-schooler to eat nutritious food? What should I do when my child talks back? How should I respond when my children fight....and on and on....! This can be anxiety-provoking for professionals, who often feel unsure about the best way to guide and support parents. This one day practical course is jam-packed with solutions (including emotion coaching, time in, giving positive verbal feedback and much, much more) to tricky parenting questions for parents of children aged 0-10 years. You’ll leave feeling confident that your advice is not only helpful for the parent, but based on top-quality research about the best way to support children’s development.

By the end of the workshop, you will be able to:

  • Identify parenting strategies which are developmentally appropriate for different age groups (babies, toddlers, pre-schoolers and school-age children)
  • Understand how parents can prevent poor behaviour and promote positive behaviour
  • Know which kinds of parenting strategies help support children’s emotional, social and cognitive development, and which don’t
  • Develop confidence in responding to a range of tricky parenting questions
  • Support parents to deal with difficult behaviour, such as tantrums and conflict between siblings
