Resilient Parents and Parenting workshop

Ever since the pandemic began, families across the globe have been forced into the home to protect themselves and their loved ones. While a home may be where the heart is, one would be remiss to say parents and children didn’t experience slight cabin fever. Confined spaces, constant interaction and no outlet for venting frustrations have had a fractious effect on the parent-child relationship. This phenomenon has been measured globally in numerous studies. Still, a recent study in Singapore during the Circuit Breaker revealed that parental stresses had a significant bearing on harsh parenting and resulted in a loss of closeness in the parent-child bond.

While academics measure and correlate, local parents have voiced their concerns over increasing hostility in the home and alienation of affection. It’s crystal clear that things will never be the same. But there is a way to recover lost time and make things better for you and your children.

Introducing the Resilient Parents and Parenting Method. To begin your intergalactic journey, you need to be in the right headspace to pilot this spaceship. At the stage we call the Core Level, focusing on yourself is the essential step. Caring for your mind, heart, and emotional well being allows you to centre yourself, stay grounded and make well-informed decisions that foster goodwill between you and your child. This isn’t some kumbayah hippy fantasy where you suddenly snap your fingers and love yourself. It’s honest work, and it takes tangible steps to move the needle in the right direction.

It takes two to tango, and at the Child Level, rebuilding your relationship needs shifting focus onto them. From observing their behaviour for telltale signs of stress in all its variants to giving attention to a child’s need for empathy and validation, this exercise is in service of what we like to call: Child Empowerment. A child can only navigate this imperfect world if given the right tools to make sense of their experiences.

 

The final stage of this journey is at the Collaboration Level. Building a genuine partnership built on open communication, mutual respect’s boundaries, mentorship, and quality time make for an unbreakable bond. Most parents fail.

Yet there is a learning curve to sustaining the relationship, and that’s where we can help.

Instead of troubleshooting blindly, let’s use a systematic approach to take back what the pandemic has taken away: a close relationship with your child. The melody of your child’s laughter is the best thing in the world, and there is no doubt you would do anything to make them look at you as their hero again.

It isn’t too late. Try our workshop now!
