Fostering independence and encouraging good behaviour. Apply the skills to train your children in those attributes that you think they should have as adults. Training children to be more self-reliant boosts their confidence hugely as well as giving them skills for life.
Being in Charge. Explore how to be in charge without being over controlling and how to discipline effectively in positive ways which encourage children to learn, not to fear.
Fostering good relationships between siblings and other children. Look at ways to foster positive relationships between children, siblings and friends, and ways of resolving conflict constructively.
Keeping Calm. How to structure your life so that when faced with provocative behaviour you can access your skills. Assess whether your expectations of your children are realistic by reference to stages of development and temperament.
What to do when your children push your buttons. When our buttons have been pushed our skills go out the window and we respond to our children's behaviour in ineffective ways. Learn how to recognise and defuse your buttons so you can react appropriately in the face of button-pushing behaviour.
