Series of Mini Parent2Parent Workshops
This hybrid 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.
Why do I propose this kind of hybrid discussion/workshop group?
Children grow up quickly: in a blink of an eye, you have in front of you an adult. You, as a parent, can feel the loss of the old, close relationship you’ve once had, or you feel the loss of being needed. Communication based on confidence can and should continue. Both sides need to 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. We will discuss delicate questions such as drugs, video games, and other potential threats.
Session 1: How do you deal with the emotions and feelings of your children in everyday situations?
Session 2: How to engage in collaboration instead of creating a conflict-based relationship with your child?
Session 3: Is there any other instead of punishing? Alternatives to punishment
Session 4: How to encourage autonomy and self-efficacy in children?
Session 5: Do we really know how to praise our children? How to praise as we should?
Session 6: How to avoid putting our children in roles and doom them with them (self-fulfilling prophecy)?
Session 7: How to speak about sex, drugs, phones, video games, and other potential threats?
Duration : 1h30

There will be three more sessions: two sessions with your children (you’re not present) and one last session where you are together with your children.

Session 1: Questions and Answers
Your children will answer a set of questions anonymously. One of the questions will be about a situation that bothers them in communication/relationship with you as parents.
Session 2: Feelings, Friends and Family
We will discuss how they speak to parents, peers and how they treat their feelings.
Session 3: Meeting up with Parents: one situation with a parent that bothers a child, examples treated anonymously (no real names) to show how to deal with this situation
