Course overview

Are your child’s big emotions impacting on your family life and wellbeing?

Do you sometimes wish you had a manual that tells you exactly what to say and do when your child is angry, scared, bored or sad?

Understanding your child’s emotions and how you can support them is a game-changer when it comes to parenting. On this course, you will learn more about your child’s emotions, their needs and how you can respond to your child in ways that support them to process their own big feelings.

Working through real life examples, you will learn strategies that you can use at home with your child from day one. With many opportunities throughout the course to trouble-shoot your own experiences with your little ones, you can begin to understand your child from their own point of view.

This course is suitable for any adult who cares for children, including parents, grandparents, and carers of children of any age, up to teens. Expectant parents are welcome to come and learn, ready to welcome their child into the world, and pre-crawling babies are welcome to attend with their adult.
