This hybrid activity (discussion/workshop group) is a remedy for the very frequent scenario “You’ll do what I say ! I’ll do what I want!” in parent-child communication.
There will be sessions dedicated to parents (7 sessions in total) and 3 more sessions where children will be present. They will have 2 sessions where parents won’t be present.
Learn how to communicate with each other
This mini-series is about the concrete situations where we learn how to really be present when in communication with our children, how to engage in collaboration with them (especially with teens) by reducing the application of force, and punishment, also how to use praise, how to enhance children’s autonomy while making sure they are far from harming themselves.
