Event description
Are you worried about your child's lack of resilience or how to motivate your child to engage in home schooling in these uncertain times?

About this Event

Do you have a daily struggle about homework or home schooling work?

Does your child lack motivation?

Are you worried about your child's lack of resilience, or their reluctance to try new things or take on new challenges?

Would you like to find out more about why children display difficult behaviour when they do not want to do something, and what you can do to avoid conflict?

Are things so much harder these days when the rules have changed and what is expected is so different from anything we have seen before?

More is being demanded of our children as the rules and expectations during the global pandemic change on a daily basis.

In addition, in today’s demanding society, employers and universities are reporting that young people lack resilience, self-motivation and creativity. 

Parents are often asking us how they can help their children to develop these soft skills which are learned by experience and are, increasingly, as important as having good exam results and a wealth of extra-curricular experiences and skills.

In addition, parents are concerned about their children's wellbeing as the lockdown continues and children are facing many more months of "the new normal".

Parents are also anxious for their children not to fall behind with school work, and are having to manage home schooling whilst also working which can be a challenge for the whole family.

Nationally the mental health of our young people has never been more at risk and the need to build resilience and the ability to bounce back has never been more important.

Parents are keen to find out how they can encourage their children to practise or revise when there are other things they would clearly rather be doing!

They also want to know how to motivate their children to be more organised and take responsibility for their own homework, PE kit or untidy bedroom.

We are, therefore, pleased to offer our popular "Talking Resilience & Motivation" workshop that addresses these questions, and has been redesigned in an exciting online format taking into account current challenges.

A Supporting Links workshop is not a lecture. It is an interactive learning experience.

This workshop will help parents understand what motivates children and adults and recognise what causes them to give up.

We will give you the tools and understanding to manage these situations when they happen.

We explore different ways of increasing motivation and deal effectively with flash points at home such as when homework or music practice needs to be done or when a child is reluctant to try something new or face a new challenge.  

We will explore what it takes to enable a young person to be prepared to face challenges and learn from their mistakes.

Emphasis is given to helping children to become adults who are able to self-motivate and deal with life's setbacks in a positive manner.

It is a practical workshop of two 90 minute sessions, on Thursdays, 25th February & 4th March, from 7.30pm to 9pm UK time and will take place via Zoom.

This workshop is open to parents and carers of children of all ages.

Each session will incorporate a Q&A session.

Parents will leave with a clear understanding of Motivation theory and, more importantly, will have the skills to apply this understanding within their families.

All participants will receive a follow up email with additional information an handouts of all materials.

Through the use of engaging presentation and written materials you will learn about:

  • How motivation works
  • What gets in the way
  • Ways to increase motivation
  • Supporting your child through challenges
  • Building resilience and increasing confidence
  • Encouraging long-term self-motivation

Previous attendees have said:

" A good set of techniques to improve resilience, motivation and engagement at home."

“I was constantly frustrated that my children could not see how important homework is and the struggles on a daily basis were exhausting. Having attended the workshop, I can see that I needed to approach things differently. It has been a great help!”

"I just wanted to say thanks. I’ve attended the stress and motivation workshops and I have found them to be so incredibly helpful in my interactions with my child!"
