Join me in Belfast for this six week Hand in Hand Parent Starter Class. This is the first time this class has been offered in Belfast. It is a chance to take an in-depth look at the Hand in Hand Parenting approach and learn how to apply the five listening tools in your day-to-day parenting.
I deeply value all the love and connection parents and caregivers invest in their children, often with little outside help. I believe we all need support in our parenting journeys, especially when times get tough.
This is a great chance to come together with other like-minded parents and learn together. You will learn the basics of human connection, how to deal with specific parenting challenges and get guidance and support throughout.
You will also get access to online course materials including video content from Patty Wipfler the founder of Hand in Hand Parenting. You will have access to these videos for 6 months allowing you time to revisit the class content and share with your partner or other family members.
Hand in Hand Parenting is all about building a strong connection with your children. Strong emotional bonds in a family lead to happy and cooperative children. Research shows that a close parent-child connection is the strongest factor that protects children from difficulties in later life.
Hand in Hand Parenting believes that children’s instinctive nature is to be kind, loving and cooperative. By supporting their emotional development, children will naturally be open and excited about life. Emotions are important signposts to a child’s inner world. At Hand in Hand we help parents and caregivers listen to tears and tantrums without becoming reactive or trying to “fix” them. Navigating these strong emotions with warmth builds a deep and loving connection between parents and children.
Hand in Hand has five simple and practical tools to help parents balance authoritative limits with fun, laughter and one on one time. We are also passionate about supporting parents with their own emotions when times get tough. In the classes I teach, I provide parents with the resources, tools and the listening they themselves need so they can remain steady when their children most need their support.
The course will run on Wednesday evenings 7.45pm to 9.45pm on the following dates: 18th March, 25th March, 1st April, 8th April, 15th April, 22nd April
(option to take a 1 week break over Easter depending on the needs of the group)
