Child psychology & mental health workshop - the primary school years
Raising school-age children can be an enjoyable experience. Watching them try new activities, cheering them on at athletic events, and applauding their accomplishments. However, achieving success is often preceded by frustration and sometimes learning to accept one's weaknesses as well as celebrating and building on strengths.
Well-equipped parents can be excellent coaches for their child no matter what the endeavour. While toddlers and preschoolers need constant supervision, school-age children become gradually ready for more independence.
However, learning to make good choices and exercise self-discipline does not come easily for many. Parents need to impart a moral code that the child gradually internalises. As children struggle with these essential tasks, parents must be able to provide praise and encouragement, but they must also allow their kids sometimes to experience the natural consequences for their behaviour or provide logical consequences to help them learn from mistakes.
This workshop gives parents ideas and tools to support children through the early stages and give them the best chances in life.
