Whether the move is from one location to another, to a new school or setting, or to a new teacher or class. It can be an anxious time for parents. The way you approach the changes your children face can be the difference between a stressful or a manageable transition. Knowing how best to manage your own emotions, worries and actions is vital for supporting children in the best possible way.
The course explores how to support children and young people to face transitions and change with mental resilience. Activities are provided to use at home to encourage a growth mindset.
What do other parents say?
We took to doing our activities during our mealtime on a Sunday evening (this tends to be our quiet evening with no work or clubs). The children enjoyed talking through the exercises with me and my husband. They remind me each Sunday that we are going to do it. It has helped me and my husband manage/react when our middle child has “meltdowns” and has prevented us from becoming so frustrated.
I learned a lot during these sessions not only to help my child but also anyone I know. These sessions really show useful supportive and positive ways to understand our relationship with ourselves as well as our children.
You will be given downloadable activities to use with your children.
