Target Audience: Parents with children ages 6 months to 4 years
Presenter: Fiona Hughes
All children have their own personalities and they’ll communicate what they need and feel through their behaviour. All children need support from their caring adults to feel okay while they experience change. This workshop will provide simple, practical ways for connecting with your children and supporting their wellbeing from the infant years through toddlers' strong emotions and tantrums.
This talk will cover the topics of:
- Tips on how to be a confident leader of your home, ways to handle anything thrown your way
- How to manage a tantrum- learning what to say and do!
- Ways to encourage communication
- How to encourage children to turn wants, needs and emotions into words
