Anne Denny teaches positive parenting courses for parents, for nannies and for people with children in their lives. Parenting skills can be learned, and just like everything else, the more we practice the better we can be.
Parenting course content covers many different parenting issues, some of which are :
How to motivate your child to co-operate and become more considerate by giving them descriptive praise when they get things right.
How to help your child manage and understand their feelings by talking about excitability, frustration and anger so they develop a close bond with you.
How to make home life happier and less stressful.
How to support your child by listening to their opinions as a member of your family and by explaining your family values.
How to focus your child on what they do right by rewarding them; have clear rules about naughty or unsafe behaviour, have a consistent consequence system.
Encourage good behaviour and habits in your child, show them attributes you want them to have as adults and teach them to be self-reliant. This includes boosting their confidence and enhancing their life skills.
Learn the skill of being in charge without being over controlling. Learn how to discipline positively and effectively, encouraging your child to learn and not to fear.
Foster positive relationships between siblings, teach them how to resolve conflict constructively and enable your children to make and keep friends.
Structure your life so that when children misbehave you can access skills in keeping calm. Also understand the developmental stages and temperament of your children enabling you to assess whether your expectations are realistic.
- What to do when Kids push your buttons
Recognise and diffuse your 'buttons' to respond to children in more effective ways and draw on skills to react appropriately to challenging behaviour.
Please contact Anne Denny for more information on the 5 and 10 week parenting course.
How parenting courses work
Courses enable parents to understand the developmental stages and individual temperaments of children and discover whether your expectations of your children are realistic.
Parenting courses are 5 weeks or 10 weeks and run for two hours each week.
Classes run from 09:30-11:30am or 19:30pm-21:30pm.
