January: The trampoline effect
Building resilience and grit is sometimes over emphasised in a world that seems to be flooded with toxic influences. Equipping children with the skills to bounce back from setbacks, persevere through challenges, and develop a growth mindset is only part of the solution. Do you know the other part?
February: Stress Busters
Mindfulness and relaxation techniques are a great way to ground a child and offer an opportunity to connect to their inner self. Teaching children techniques to manage stress, improve focus, and enhance overall well-being allows them to make better choices for themselves and show up as their own best version.
March: Being nice doesn’t matter
Building Emotional intelligence is not about learning to be nice, it is about playing your top inner game. Supporting children to develop self awareness, regulation, empathy, and social skills is an essential part of this puzzle, but there is more to it that nobody is talking about. Secret whispered out loud may be the solution?
April: Anger with a Capital D
Exploring and deepening communication skills is something that every family benefits from. The art of effective questioning, active listening, and conflict management strategies allows the opportunity to make good choices when the conflict arises. Anger is totally acceptable as an emotion, but it is only a viable solution to a challenge when channeled correctly and opportunity is given for healthy expression.
May: What kids want that money can’t buy
Parental involvement is sometimes substituted for material possessions in a world geared towards commercialism. A variety of reasons could be the cause of this such as parents overcompensating for their lost childhood, or a lack of time and energy. The aim is to discuss ways to effectively engage and spend time playing with children to build a solid sense of self based on a values system that becomes an inner GPS for making choices.
June: No arms to hug, no eyes to see
Diversity, equality and inclusion are new buzz words but what do they actually mean? Understanding the fundamentals of how to support children with special needs, learning differences, and diverse backgrounds are important in a world where the "new normal” is to “not fit in but to stand out."
July: Giving up is the hard part
Discipline in children is a contentious issue with many varying opinions on parenting and classroom behaviour modification strategies. Addressing challenging behaviours and promoting positive behaviour change in children is about more than just telling, it is about doing and believing that more is possible.
August: Eating chocolate is good for you
Positive psychology and happiness is well researched and have been proven to be beneficial for maintaining mental wellbeing. Exploring concepts like gratitude, optimism, strengths-based approaches, and fostering happiness in children is essential for building strong bodies, hearts and minds.
September: Reach for the stars
Creativity and imagination is a natural intuitive process all humans are born with. When life gets too busy and filled with superfluous tasks lacking in meaning and purpose, this can lead to depression, anxiety and a general feeling of hopelessness. Promoting creative thinking, problem-solving skills, and nurturing children's imagination is the antidote to this.
October: Disconnect to reconnect
Self-care is essential for modern day living. Supporting families in maintaining their well-being, managing stress, and preventing burnout is a buffer to physical and mental illness. Simple strategies allow a sense of hope and agency in navigating a landscape that doesn't always allow for downtime.
November: Why bullying isn’t a thing
The landscape of childhood friendships is changing with increased pressure to fit in, easy access to technology and social media. Alongside this, reduced in person communication has led to relationship problems and a perceived upswing in bullying. How can adults be part of the solution?
December: Failing to plan is planning to fail
Goal Setting: What it is, what it isn't. Why SMART goals don't work for children. How to set developmentally appropriate micro goals that can build good daily habits for achieving a productive day, week, month and year.
