|Now, probably more than ever before, it is critical that we as parents are well supported so that we can look after ourselves and our children in the extremely challenging circumstances that we are currently facing around the world. When things get tough we often find that our children's behaviour heads off track more easily and frequently and it can be hard to respond in ways that fits our values when we are also under high levels of stress. Add in physical isolation from our normal support networks and concerns about the health and well-being of those we love and it is unsurprising that so many of us are struggling.
How do we make good decisions that help our family survive, let alone thrive as we move through this time and out the other side?
For over 30 years, Hand in Hand Parenting has been supporting parents to understand their children's behaviour and build deeply connected relationships that last a lifetime. We know that every family is unique and that with sufficient support each parent can figure out what will work best in their specific situation. The five Listening Tools that we share with parents are easy to learn and yet hugely effective. They have transformed lives around the world, helping parents to learn how to connect well with their children, bring more play and joy into their lives and help their children become emotionally resilient as they grow.
We'll be looking at what drives our children's behaviour, how we can help them move through hard times and find ways to have fun and play even while under lockdown or quarantine.
Every week we'll meet over Zoom to take a look at one of the Hand in Hand tools in detail and answer your questions to help you with whatever's going on in your home right now. We'll also provide emotional support for each other through Listening Partnerships, our tool for parents. Having this regular safe space to turn to has possibly never been more important, and as well as getting support right now you'll meet like-minded parents and learn the skills to set up your own Listening Partnerships that will enrich your life for many years to come.
Here's what parents have said about what it's been like to work with Lara:
We all deserve support.
No parent should have to do this alone.
Come and join this group for clear info, great tools and emotional togetherness, even while we stay safely apart. Lara can't wait to meet you!
