What is this training about?

Parenting a troubled child can be a very stressful experience. As parents/carers – we often feel an overwhelming need to understand what is going on for our child, and most importantly, how to support them in the best ways possible. Whilst there are no ‘magic answers’, often knowing a little more about the difficulty your child is facing, and exploring different strategies to support them can be incredibly helpful.

This seminar explores parenting approaches which particularly support the development of your child’s self-esteem. We look at the importance of having a close and open relationship with your child, and we discuss communication strategies that build confidence and a positive self-concept.

What are the learning aims?

In this seminar, you will:

  • Learn about what positive self esteem is in children, and how to spot signs of low self-esteem
  • Learn about brain development so that you can understand some of the behaviours you see in your child
  • Learn about how your relationship with your child can be a very powerful tool for support and repair
  • Learn a range of very practical, realistic, hands-on strategies for how to build your child’s self-esteem
