Understanding Feelings (June 6)
June 6, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm| Free
Community Based Education in Nurturing Parenting is an 8 session series aimed at teaching parents the basic philosophy and practices of Nurturing Parenting in raising healthy, caring children, and the importance of making time to Nurture themselves.
This 5th lesson of the 8 lesson series is all about understanding feelings. Many people may not identify as a “feelings” person, however the reality is that everyone has feelings, so we all must learn how to recognize, manage and communicate feelings, and learn to recognize feelings in other people.
This lesson will take a closer look at these areas:
• The three steps to managing feelings
• Helping children manage their feelings
• How to build emotional competence in your child
Participants will engage in brainstorming, discussion questions, role plays and self reflection. Take home information sheets are provided for participants to continue their journey to become a more Nurturing Parent.
A light meal will be provided and bus tickets are available upon request.
