Strengths Parenting

Building on what participants have learnt about The Resilience Doughnut, this module provides a practical introduction to strengths-based parenting and shows participants how to harness their child's strengths as an essential tool for their happiness, and a recipe for effective and enjoyable parenting. Strengths [parenting isn’t about lavishing kids with false and excessive praise. It’s about real feedback based on a child’s actual strengths. Nor does focusing on strengths mean we ignore problems. Instead, it shows us how to use what we’re good at to work on what we’re not so good at. Knowing their strengths gives children a solid-enough identity to acknowledge and address the areas where they need to improve. Being strength-based allows parents to approach weaknesses from a larger context - seeing the whole window, not just the dirt.

Conversations for Resilience

The conversations we have with our child and the way we respond when they are faced with difficulties and challenges provide an opportunity to build their resilience. This module explores a range of everyday conversation tools which are not only more effective but build resilience and make for more enjoyable parenting.

Resilient Thinking

This module helps participants explore, in more depth, the connection between resilience and their child's thinking. We introduce the idea of 'thought catching' and how this improves self-awareness of helpful and unhelpful thinking habits. Participants also learn a range of simple conversational strategies to help their child switch to more helpful thinking habits when they are struggling.
