Your baby turns one year old and over the next couple of months appears to have a personality change - the baby has gone and the toddler arrives! A toddler with a very strong mind of his own. Very often as parents we feel we havent got the skills, language etc to deal with what we thought would be a relatively straightforward part of parenting especially after the first year of the unknown.
Are you feeling frustrated? perhaps youre not enjoying being a parent as much as you thought you would. The challenges seem endless in engaging your little persons co operation?
Toddlerhood is a period of great change for your toddler but for you too. This workshop is designed as a full days course to tackle the everyday issues we struggle with as parents of toddlers (1-3 ) and includes:
- Understanding your toddlers brain - your childs developmentla norms
- Exploring parenting styles and boundaries for the toddler - setting loving limits
- Engaging co operation
- Developing a tool box of parenting skills which you can develop further as your child grows
- Coping with a toddler temper tantrum
- Emotionally refuelling ourselves.
This course is designed for parents to attend together where possible in order to have a joined approach. However childcare is not provided and unfortunately toddlers cannot attend!
I promise you will have fun and learn lots. This course is for you if you are a parent of a toddler - full stop - blended families, LGBT families, lone parents. The focus is on developing a positive relationship with your toddler whilst managing the challenges that arise parenting a toddler.
