Pillars of Parenting: (4) Offering Support – listening & Questioning

Pillars of Parenting: (4) Offering Support – listening & Questioning

Welcome to the fourth and final  online session of the workshop series, Pillars of Parenting.

Many of us grapple to find solutions to day-to-day problems or deeper challenges while parenting our children. Often, this is because we have not addressed the basics!

This Online Workshop Series  goes right into the heart of the matter – to understand the 4 foundational pillars essential to Parenting:

  1.  Building Trust
  2.  Staying Positive
  3.  Being Interested
  4.  Offering Support

Through an experiential and immersive process, Parents will learn how to establish a strong and mindful relationship with their child(ren) and their environments.

Each pillar is being introduced through a separate session; one per month. The first two sessions  – Building Trust and Staying Positive, were conducted in Aug and Sept 2020 respectively. Pillars of Parenting series will be offered regularly through these 4 independent but consecutive sessions. If you have missed the first two, don’t worry. They will be conducted once again, very soon.

Now, Introducing Part 4  of this series – Offering Support through listening & Questioning
This session focusses on 2 critical skills essential to parenting. They are listening deeply and questioning with care.

Program Objective

Very often, parents find that we may not be fully present to our child(ren)! We may be distracted, pre-occupied, stressed with other factors or plain disinterested!

This leaves us dismissing the child prematurely or answering half-heartedly; or even yelling for the child to stop/go away! What then happens to the parent-child relationship? Join us to understand these attitudes and make changes within. Truly enjoy the beautiful relationship with your child through Trust, Positivity & INTEREST.
