Exploring the latest research in  relationship-based  parenting & childcare

combining neuroscience, mindfulness & pikler/rie & steiner philosophies

designed for parents & educators caring for children anywhere from birth through to the teenage years

Next interactive seminar 2019:

growing strong confident children
Tuesday 5th November 2019
7.30 - 9 pm
at the Mary Potter Centre
442 Durham Street North

The talk this month will explore how we can strengthen children’s mental health so that they are able to cope with the challenges of life as they arise. In particular we will look at how a child’s sense of self is built through their everyday experiences and how we can consciously build a strong sense of confidence and competence in them to support them throughout their lives. I very much look forward to bringing this talk to you and engaging in conversation around this most important topic.
