Event description

Description

Brown Junior Public School and Brown Parent Council presents:

How To Stop Reacting & Start Responding:

Understand Your Child & Improve Your Relationship

This is a free event, open to parents from any TDSB School.

As parents, navigating difficult conversations is part of our job description. How do we keep calm and achieve a product outcome, all while keeping our relationships intact? The secret is curiosity.

It’s the innovation-driving, emotion-calming skill that comes naturally to us as kids, but gets buried by our busy, multitasking lifestyles. Understanding how to have productive conversations in high stakes, emotional situations are skills that are expected of parents but are never taught.

In this interactive session you will learn how to:

  • See, hear and understand your child - even in high stakes, emotional situations
  • Calm down when negative emotions run high transforming conflict into relationship-building opportunities
  • Access proven tools, backed by neuroscience, to stop reacting & start responding to build stronger connections with your child.
