Workshop – How to Raise a Resilient Child

resilient child

Most of you would know that I brought JJ to an occupational therapist early this year. I’ve personally benefitted a lot from learning from Anita; she helped JJ (and I) through the growing pains experienced by a very independent and order-loving child early this year. She has so much wisdom and kindness to share so I decided to work with her to organise this parenting workshop.

The workshop is designed for every parent who wants to embrace their child for who they are, and who wants to learn how to be their life-long cheer-leading coach. It is packed with useful tips from how to manage tempter tantrums, to how to rely less on the gadget nanny.

Here are the details!

Come to learn about how to raise a resilient child in an interactive 2hr parenting workshop. By the end of the session, you will be more equipped to manage your child’s emotions and needs, and gain greater confidence to walk with them through life as a guide and mentor. Suitable for children aged 2 and above.

Topics include:

  • What is resilience
  • The difference between a meltdown and a tantrum
  • How to increase your child’s ability to cope with frustration
  • How to increase your child’s attention span
  • How to deal with difficult behaviour
  • How to reduce your child’s reliance on mobile devices
  • What your child needs in order to perform his/her best

      Hi Rebecca, that’s a good question, thanks for raising it. Resilience is not just about performing well in school. It’s about raising happy and confident and thriving children. Good grades are great, but it is possible to raise a fragile yet high-achieving child. A resilient child is one who can withstand the hard knocks in life. I hope this helps to address your question. Do let me know if you have further queries. You can email me too – mamawearpapashirt [at] gmail [dot] com. 🙂

      Hi Cat, we hope that parents can attend the session without their child, in order to minimise distraction and maximise the time that we have. 🙂
