HAPPIMESS PILLARS OF PARENTHOOD WORKSHOPS

We’ve all heard the adage “there’s no instruction manual on how to be a parent” but we all could use some help and guidance from time to time. Our workshops are conducted by local experts, with a wealth of experience, who have crafted their courses to give you a clear understanding of why things can go wrong and what to do about them.

 

Discover insights into how children feel, think, and understand our communication with them and that may help improve relationships. Learn a range of tried and tested skills for preventing and managing difficult behaviour, healthy and lasting ways to engender self-esteem, motivating children to be their best, and creating an environment in which not only the child but the whole family flourishes. 

* Our workshops are conducted in a small group setting and all your specific questions will be addressed.
