NS Workshop: Attachment Play & Setting Limits

NS Workshop: Attachment Play & Setting Limits

with Marion Rose & Helena Mooney
Sunday 27 July 2014 from 1.00 – 5.00pm


Did you know that laughter and play have powerful therapeutic effects for children and parents?

When we are finding things challenging – when our toddler won’t let us brush her teeth, or our son wants to jump on the bed before sleep – then we can cooperate with this natural ability that children have to release built up stress from everyday life through laughter and play.

Rather than getting serious or using our power to get them to do things we want them to do, we can use play and laughter to create connection and evoke easy cooperation instead.  As well as that, we also feel lighter, and the family atmosphere becomes filled with joy, fun, and celebration

In this 4 hour workshop, you will:

  • kids piggybacking mumExplore what affects children’s need to think well & regulate their behaviour
  • Learn why children sometimes do things that seem to deliberately annoy us
  • Understand how to help children de-stress, cooperate and think well
  • Learn how to use play and laughter in challenging situations
  • Understand the power of changing our beliefs about discipline
  • Find out about the difference between repression, acting out, and release, both in ourselves and our children
  • Have support with moving through your own challenges or hesitation around being playful.
  • Be inspired to get less serious and have more fun with your family

Tickets: $95
