Welcome to Day 1 of Fewer Fights & Fabulous Fun! Am so pleased you’re here and you’re joining us for these 5 days.
If you don’t know me yet, I’m a Parenting Educator & Mentor, specialising in Hand in Hand Parentings’ Parenting by Connection and Aware Parenting. I’m also mum to 7 year old Emily (who you’ll hear a bit about during this course!) and 1 year old George (who will be the source of many future stories!).
FIRST THING I’d love for you to do is to SIGN UP for the Fewer Fights & Fabulous Fun Facebook Group. Come along and chat about what’s going on – what’s working, what’s not, ask your questions and give the other parents in there your support. I’d love for this to be a great place for us to all hang out and chat this week.
OK – let’s get on with Day 1!
Today we’re looking at
- Why Our Kids Lose It / Become Annoying / Act Up – what’s going on for them in their brain (which also applies to us when we lose it to!)
- Why Connection is the key to help them during those challenging times
- How Special Time can really help – I’ll explain what that is and how to do it.
So your ‘homeplay’ today is to spend at least 5 minutes with each of your children giving them Special Time. And then – let us know in the Facebook Group how it goes!
I look forward to seeing you tomorrow for Day 2……
