Term 4 - Mood Meter Program

(4th November – 28th November 2016) 
Want to help your children be the best they can be? Then you need to build their emotional intelligence.

Term 1 2017 - Cracking the Confidence Code

Term 2 2017 - Raising Mighty Girls

May 2017
Girls may have a head start on boys in the academic stakes but life these days is not all smooth sailing for girls. They are often harder on themselves than boys, more likely to be perfectionists, and have more fears.  Unlock the secrets to raising girls of any age so that they become more confident; build positive self-esteem and body image; can face up to their fears; build friendships and not cliques; face the challenges of living in a digital world; build strong connections with fathers from a young age; and make the most of their natural strengths.  More details coming soon...

Here’s what past participants say about this amazing course:

“I am calmer, I shout less, I am more mindful of how I am feeling and why. It has been enlightening to see how reactive I have been in the past and I am now more aware at how I am responding emotionally. It’s been a life-changer.” Caroline Y, mother

“I am not as impulsive. I’m calmer and more analytical when confronted with inappropriate behaviour by my children. I am not taking it personally any more.” Karen C, mother

“I am more aware of my own moods and I now know how to help my children recognise and shift their moods.” Jason, dad

“It is such a simple way to get me to check in on how my emotional state is affecting my parenting and such a simple tool to explain to kids and get them to use.” Lyndall Q, mother
