Following on from last Friday's 'Bringing Up Independent Learners' I attended a parenting workshop with Mette entitled -
We learned how to -
Encourage a positive attitude and behavior in teenagers through effective communication
Support teenagers to become more responsible around the house
Support teenagers to develop a healthy sense of self-confidence through “Mindful Hang Out Time’ and problem solving.
Use effective tolls to increase what we want to see more of in our teenagers and less of the lippy attitude
Make commands more effective so that they will listen and communicate the first time, without having to nag or shout.
Discuss ways in which we can limit our own voice in the house and instead create a calmer and happier home.
Whilst I have a 10 and 9 year old I enjoyed getting a taste of what's to come and how to make positive changes now in anticipation.
On the back of this I also now have some teenagers coming over to do yoga with me which I'm really looking forward to.
I will be hosting Parenting Success Workshops from January 2016.
