Conscious Parenting

Aired Thursday, September 10, 2020 at 1:00 PM PST / 4:00 PM EST

What a minefield… Everyone has their own ideas and most of us make it up as we go along… Nothing really prepares us for becoming a parent… The sleepless nights, chronic tiredness, the joy, the worry, feeling that you’re not enough. The need for organisation, being one step ahead if you’re lucky… The constant washing, cleaning and changing in the early days to the why, why, why… no, no, no of the 2’s and beyond to understanding why our children act the way they do and the impact of our parenting style. How to react appropriately when our child is under stress. Strategies on how to grow our child’s self-esteem and help them develop a more efficient study method.

Fostering the natural talents of our children. Remaining calm and centred when it seems we’re in the middle of a battlefield. Establishing loving authority in your home which creates conditions to open up communication and build trust. Building an atmosphere of harmony rather than criticism, bickering, or put downs and resolving disagreements and conflicts constructively and without power struggles. How to recognise our parenting habits that destroy self-esteem and weaken relationships. Teaching our children to assume responsibility for their feelings and actions and setting limits and enforce discipline without being heavy-handed are some of the points that Jill Pay and Pennie will be discussing and over the next couple of weeks. So, join us to learn more and participate in this emotive subject which brings its joys and frustrations.
