DAY ONE TOPICS: ALL ABOUT YOU (conscious parenting tactics)
When it comes to parenting, we find ourselves repeating certain habits that might be a bit aggressive, and energy draining that all lead to a passive atmosphere for the children to grow. First we have to understand that we all have our own set of beliefs and values that guide us. These beliefs are often shaped by our own upbringing, cultural influences, and personal experiences. But sometimes, these beliefs can be limiting or even detrimental to the well-being of our children and can lead us to get stuck in a reactivity loop.
Untangling and analysing our parenting beliefs as well as identifying the conflict loop are essential in order to create a healthy and positive environment for our children to thrive in. It requires us to take a step back and question why we believe certain things about parenting and observe our life.
Parenting can be challenging, especially when it comes to dealing with conflicts between you and your children. But remember, breaking the conflict cycle is essential in fostering a positive parent-child relationship.
Remember, breaking the conflict cycle requires first to understand the elements of this loop plus having patience and practice as no one approach fits all situations perfectly. Stay attuned to your child’s individual needs and adapt these strategies accordingly – this will lead to healthier communication patterns within your family unit!
As parents, it’s crucial to understand that our beliefs and mindset greatly influence how we perceive and respond to our children’s actions. By adopting a fresh perspective, we can effectively tackle behavioural challenges with empathy and understanding.
To build this new belief system, start by questioning your existing beliefs about child behaviour. Reflect on where these beliefs originated from – society, family, or personal experiences? Are they helpful or hindering? Challenge any negative or judgmental thoughts you may have towards your child’s behaviours.
As parents, we often find ourselves overwhelmed and frustrated by our children’s behaviour. It’s natural to feel a range of emotions in response to their actions, but it’s important for us to regulate our emotions effectively. When we react impulsively or with anger, it can escalate the situation and create a negative cycle.
One way to regulate our emotions is by taking a step back and pausing before responding. This gives us the opportunity to assess our own feelings and choose a more thoughtful approach. Deep breathing exercises can also help calm our nervous system and bring us back into a state of balance.
Remember that self-care is not selfish but necessary for being the best version of ourselves as parents will ultimately benefit both us and our children. By prioritizing our own psychological well-being alongside theirs’, we create an environment where everyone’s needs are acknowledged and fulfilled—an environment conducive to positive parenting practices.
DAY TWO TOPICS: ALL ABOUT YOUR CHILD (positive parenting tactics)
Understanding children’s behaviour and actions is like unlocking a fascinating puzzle. Each child has their own unique personality, temperament, and experiences that shape how they interact with the world around them. As parents, it’s important for us to take the time to observe and understand our children’s behaviours in order to respond effectively.
Children communicate through their actions because they may not have developed the necessary language skills to express themselves fully. For example, when a toddler throws a tantrum in the supermarket, it could be their way of expressing frustration or seeking attention. By understanding this underlying emotion, we can address their needs more appropriately.
One sign that it might be time to seek professional help is if your child’s behaviour is causing significant disruption in their daily life. This could include constant tantrums, aggression towards others, or difficulty interacting with peers. If you find that the behaviours are persistent and interfering with your child’s ability to function well at home or school, it may be beneficial to consult with a professional.
A Behaviour Intervention Plan (BIP) is a structured approach that helps identify the specific behaviours that need to be addressed and outlines strategies for managing and modifying those behaviours.
Remember that every child is unique, so it’s important to tailor the BIP specifically to their needs. By consistently implementing an individualized plan alongside positive parenting techniques, you can help your child navigate through challenging behaviours while promoting healthy development overall.
Our trainer Iman Battikha always makes sure to bring all the knowledge we acquired in the past days and put it to action through realistic scenarios shared by the attendees. We will be practicing identifying the behavior’s true message and the correlated correcting plan with the audience.
We make sure that our attendees has not only gained the knowledge but also the courage to practice it all in their day to day life.
VOE trainings include a specific time for questions and answers. We encourage interactive experiences with the instructor thus reflecting all knowledge acquired in training on practical life situations. This will be a very engaging session run by Ms. Iman Batikha for both online and onsite participants.
