  • Different parenting styles
  • Understanding your child
  • Setting boundaries
  • The importance of love and connection

Session 1: Understanding love and connection

Session one explores what loving warm relationships look like.

Session 2: Understanding yourself as a parent

Session two takes a look at different parenting styles and helps us uncover which one we use most. This session also unpacks the tools needed to shift parenting styles and take care of ourselves along the way.

Session 3: Understanding emotions

Session three is about helping us understand our children's emotions and explores the ways we can deeply connect with our kids by learning to listen and understand their emotions.

Session 4: Understanding behaviour

Session four is about understanding how we can respond to our children’s behaviour by encouraging the behaviour we want and responding to the behaviour we don’t want.

Session 5: Understanding the world of a preschooler

Session five looks at some of the common challenges of parenting preschoolers, and parenting tools that offer helpful support.

Session 6: Understanding a culture of connection

Session six looks at the importance of having routines, rituals and fun with our children. It is an opportunity to reflect on the key topics we have covered so far and the dreams we have for our children.
