Amelia-Rose Read – Clinical Psychologist – Preparatory Campus
It was such a pleasure facilitating our first Positive Parenting workshop to our TSS Preschool parents. It was wonderful to see such a large cohort of parents attend the two-week program.
Having numerous dedicated parents in the same room, eager and devoted to supporting their child’s behaviour was a powerful experience for all involved. Parents took part in explicit learning, guided discussion, and practice exercises in order to learn the basic principles of positive parenting. Parents became detectives of their child’s behaviour by exploring common family environmental factors that contribute to behavioural problems, before they delved into specific strategies to promote positive relationships with their boys.
Week 2 revolved around managing misbehaviour with a focus on compliance and consequences. We had fun, learnt new skills and indulged in delicious and healthy snacks.
As parents play such an integral role in the education pathways here at TSS, we would love to offer this program again to more cohorts of parents. If you would like this program to be run again, please register your interest, along with the grade of your son, to: [email protected] and we will endeavour to support your needs.
