Four Part Series on Parenting
Specific ideas of how to adequately meet this emotional need will be explored. Becoming aware of the forces that drive and hinder the parents’ ability to connect effectively with their child is required before being able to start implementing some strategies and healthy habits that can result in a closer relationship.
(3) Healthy Autonomy
The focus for this stage is how to help the child develop into a separately functioning individual so that they can take a sense of security and stability, assertiveness and competence into their adult lives. In order for this to be achieved, parents will be coached through ways of helping their child develop their own motivation, become independent thinkers and problem solvers and increase their self-confidence.
(4) Reasonable Limits
In the age of social media and the increasing number of hours spent on screens, the importance of parents meeting the core emotional need of reasonable limits is more vital than ever.
Strategies for developing traits of self-control and self-discipline in the child will be formulated and healthy age-appropriate boundaries established.
(5) Realistic Expectations
It is becoming more common for children to experience increasingly high amounts of pressure to perform academically, reach an elite sporting level or achieve excellence in a host of other pursuits.
Coaching in this area supports parents to achieve a balance between work and play so that children are not made to feel that they have to attain perfection, but rather motivated and inspired by their parents to be their best.
(6) Community, Repair and Reconnect
This session explores the possibilities of longer term support and encouragement for parents by looking at existing or potential significant others who can impact the child, underpinning the concept, “it takes a village to raise a child”.
