More and more research is suggesting that rewards and punishments are not optimal for children's development and don't support intrinsic motivation. Often parents wonder what on earth they can use to help them to get children to stop doing what they don't want or in fact do what they want! Play is like a magic key to your children's co-operation and connection.
Rebecca Sheikh from Flourishing Childhood will be leading a series of workshops to support parents in their parenting using the latest understanding of developmental psychology, neuroscience and nervous system work. These workshops are for you if you have come across books like Philippa Perry's book: The Book You Wish Your Parents had Read, Daniel Siegels book: No drama Discipline or Lawrence Cohens book: Playful Parenting and you want to find out more about parenting in this deeply connected way. Perhaps you are tired of sounding like your parents or the sound of yourself nagging. Perhaps this parenting adventure hasn't turned out the way you imagined and you'd like to find a new way of communicating and connecting with your child/ren.
Rebecca is passionate about stengthening attachment and supporting children to heal any stress and trauma that occur in their lives, early on, thus supporting mental health, wellbeing and resilience in children. A new paradigm in parenting is desperately needed to help our children navigate through an unknown future. We need to do this together.
