Parenting with
Connection

When: Sunday 6th November
Time: 12.00 – 2.30pm
Cost: $55 per family
Tea and nibbles provided

Most of us want to be “good parents”.
We want to enjoy our babies and children and feel connected, calm and patient.
So what happens when things don’t go as planned.
Perhaps the pregnancy or birth was bumpy or perhaps you are feeling a little lost, alone, anxious, sad and maybe even angry and resentful.
Perhaps you wanted to be a calm, gentle and peaceful parent, but are shocked by the anger and rage that sometimes explodes out of you at your baby or partner.

This workshop is for new AND experienced parents who want to:

  • Normalise their feelings in parenthood
  • Understand healthy anger and aggression
  • Learn how to be kinder to themselves on the tough days.
  • Learn some tools that will benefit both them AND their baby/children.

We will cover:

  • Connected and conscious parenting
  • Normalising anger and rage
  • Self compassion and nervous system care
  • Softening expectations
  • Understanding everyones’ feelings and needs

WHY DO WE NEED SUPPORT IN PARENTING?
When we feel more connected to ourselves and our feelings in parenting, we can build capacity to be more connected to our babies and children.
When we can express our own feelings and needs, we can normalise the very real experience of our children’s feelings.
We will talk about tears and tantrums, meltdowns and anger and why all of these very healthy feelings in children are HARD for us to listen to as parents.
And I will provide some tools for self compassion, nervous system care and softening your expectations as a parent.
