PreSchoolers, Parenting And A Plan!
Trust me, it works better than winging it...
Would you feel frustrated if your boss was ill-prepared, yet expected you to succeed?
Would it feel confusing to work with someone who operates mostly through emotion and reaction, rather than through forethought and reflection?
Ever been on a team with someone who rarely practiced, but blew up when the team did poorly?
These are examples of situations we, as parents, expect our children to deal with all the time...with us! Not because we don't care or want to do better, but because we are overwhelmed and under-trained for the most important job of our lives: parenting.
Join Alison Bower to learn practical tools and approaches based in research that will empower you to be the parent you want to be....and build community in the process! Come and see what it can feel like to have the tools you need to parent well without missing a meeting at work, or leaving the house at night!
