KM Parent Education Evening



PARENT DISCUSSION - Following the last parent education evening, we would like to open the floor to parents to ask parents about their ideas for parenting: what works and what doesn't. Please come and ask you questions of your peers, or if you are getting things right, share your idea with the group.

Facilitated by KM Director Kate Broughton

The original questions for discussion were below, but please add your own!

  • "How do I stay calm with my child when he challenges my authority?"
  • "How do I enable my child to handle her strong emotions?"
  • "How do I create peace in my home when I don't feel peaceful myself?"
  • "How do I help my child feel less fearful?"
