The strongest predictor of life success for children is being able to regulate emotions. This means when they are feeling anxious or avoidant that they can bring themselves back to being resilient. We can teach children these skills. Even better we can show them how to do it. This is where the ‘Peaceful Parents’ program is so powerful. By focusing on listening, communication and mindful parenting we can demonstrate these skills to our children day in day out. Relationships with children thrive when we Connect, Protect and Respect one another (CPR). ‘Peaceful Parents’ builds this by helping parents to 'Connect' - To their strengths as parents, Identifying strengths of children and Developing cultures of unconditional positive regard, 'Protect' - Know how to handle strong emotions, How to listen well & calming mindfulness and emotional regulation and to 'Respect' - Using the 4 C’s – calm, curious, coach and communicate to develop ways to peacefully parent children.
