FOR PARENTS 

We have teamed up with Stuart Wesley from Wesley Counselling to offer a series of presentations designed to encourage and equip parents in their critical parenting role. These presentations can be delivered individually or as a series. 

Presentations run for 2 hours (including a break) and cost $30pp + GST (minimum 25 people). 

PARENTS AND PERSONALITIES

This presentation introduces the well-known D.I.S.C model to parents, which provides a framework for understanding personalities. This fun and engaging presentation helps parents to identify their own personality style and the personality style of their child. This knowledge points to common strength and struggles for each relationship in the family, and suggests strategies for building healthy relationships between personalities.

WHO'S IN CHARGE?

Parental authority can sometimes have a ‘do it my way or else’ vibe about it. The question is, “How does a parent stay in charge while positively building the parent-teen relationship?” Many parents feel torn between remaining in charge and dominating the relationship, or giving in to the teen’s wishes to maintain a friendly relationship. There is another way. Parents can become aware of their default parenting style and then choose different approaches with their teen. This presentation equips parents with a parenting style that is honouring for both the parent and teen.

GETTING GREAT COMMUNICATION

When parents complain that their child is not listening to them, the focus is usually on how to change the child. This presentation focuses on the communication of the parent, empowering them to transform the communication game. 

THE HOME OF PEACE

While no family will be free of conflict, the ability to have conflict in constructive ways is crucial for growing peacefulness in the home and training children to raise issues that matter deeply to them. Parental reactions to conflict shape how the conflict will play out for good or bad. This presentation looks at the ways in which parents can become more aware of their own triggers and how they feed conflict in the family. It aims to equip parents with a framework for standing their ground on principles and values while maintain stable emotions. 

RESPONSIBLE KIDS

Yes! It is possible to have children who take responsibility. But it does not happen on its own. Teens need to be guided toward becoming responsible people. This presentation focuses on building responsibility and obedience. 

WHAT'S TRENDING?

It is difficult to stay on top of social and technological trends in our culture. The rate of change is lightning fast. By staying informed of current issues such as social media, sexting, pornography and more, parents can lead constructive conversations with their kids to help them make informed choices and stay safe for life. This presentation aims to help parents to understand the social and technological issues facing their kids and equips them with tools to hold constructive conversations on sensitive issues.
