Managing Challenging Behaviour Confidently: 75 Minute, Small Group Session For Parents and At-Home Childcarers

£20.00

Thursday 15 November 2018

10.45am to 12.00pm

Are you having to deal with challenging or difficult behaviour from your child or children you look after?

Let’s face it, every child has one of those moments when tempers flare which can quickly morph into them throwing, kicking or shouting.  In the midst of it, you can feel quite helpless and having the tools to react appropriately can be invaluable.  You can learn how to diffuse a situation and support a child to develop and gain the skills they need to regulate their behaviour.

We’ll be talking about effective strategies that you can use and how you feel when you are at the receiving end of the challenging behaviour, whether it is refusing to wear certain clothes or it is a full-blown tantrum. We’ll explore how you feel when the tantrum is in full flight and how you can help a child to regulate their behaviour.

This practical 75 minute, small group session looks at strategies you can adapt to promote positive behaviour in children aged one to eight years.

Infant to preschool Nutrition: Setting your child up for a healthy approach to food

From: £75.00

Are you trying to interpret the latest findings from Public Health England to ensure that you are not setting your child up for a life of obesity? Recent studies have shown the frightening level that sugar loaded and fat loaded snacks are informing children’s diets.

Finding the balance and finding a way to tweak a diet to make it healthier can sometimes take a very small number of steps. Join us for a small intimate session with friends, work colleagues or family to learn about children’s dietary needs and requirements and how you can help set your child up for a healthy approach to food in adulthood.

Sessions can be arranged for daytime, evening or at the weekend and can be delivered in a family home, community centre or setting, at a time, on a day and in a location of your choice.

A session can be for as little as four participants to a maximum of twelve. If you are a larger group no problem we can create a bespoke session. Our team frequently teaches nursery and school groups and we would be happy to work with your local Early Years setting too!
