• Consent and Boundaries Workshop

    By : Categories : Comment: 0 Comment

    As parents and guardians, we can worry about keeping our children safe – whether that’s from scrapes and bruises or hurt feelings. But what about protection from unsafe relationships and abuse? Body safety education can play a role in empowering children with preventative skills. We can teach our little ones to seek help or self-advocate if they feel unsafe or experience abuse.

    In this foundational workshop, we will learn how to begin or continue practicing healthy boundaries, consent, and body safety. We will cover how adults can model safe relationships, pass along healthy body messages, and teach bodily autonomy. In this way, parents and guardians can create a home environment where there is an understanding of consent and a respect for the boundaries of self and others.

  • Tuning into Temperament

    Workshop: Tuning into Temperament: Monday May 30th @ 10am

    Every child has their own unique temperament. Learning how to tune into our child’s personality helps us to work with their specific traits and strengths, rather than in opposition to them. How do we support our “spirited and active” children with organizing their feelings? How do we create a sense of safety for our “cautious” little ones in new situations? Join us as we learn how our personality interplays with that of our child’s, and explore strategies in supporting their unique way of being.

    In partnership with Parent Support Services Society of BC, we are pleased to offer Emotions in Parenting, a 1.5 hr workshop via Zoom.

    Emotion regulation is an integral part of thriving children, with their parents and caregivers holding the key to this ability. How can we, as grown ups respond to the flood of emotions from our children when we are taking the heat from their behaviours? How can we co-regulate when we ourselves are feeling overwhelmed? And what can we do to start building our children’s emotional capacity and understanding of themselves and others?
