“Parenting – It’s a marathon, not a sprint” Workshop THIS MONDAY 7/5/18

CLG will be hosting a 30 minute workshop on Monday May 7th called ‘Parenting – It’s a marathon not a sprint’ presented by a DECD Behaviour Coach Mat Haslett. Mat is highly experienced in dealing with a host of complex issues in schools and has garnered a wealth of information to support parents and families.

Topics may include:

Sleep – I’m grumpy when I’m tired…. . It’s likely that students will not cope as well  with yard injustices if they are tired.

Strategies around this and how environment and attention can influence sleep success. Also links into screens in bedrooms and cyber stuff later.

No and wait – If “no” is the start of a negotiation at your house, it is likely that your child will not cope when a teacher says “no” to them in a classroom.  The definition of “no” and the consistency around this is crucial for classrooms to function smoothly. I’ll discuss this and ways to preserve your “no” and not undermine yourself if you change your mind as a parent. Waiting is a skill. At home, you can drop everything and “service” your child straight away as soon as they make a request of you – OR you can make them wait a bit. If they can’t wait for you at home, this is a sign that they may not be able to wait in a classroom setting. Manufacturing times when your child waits is important.

Meals together – Staying connected is money in the bank for you as children get older. During teenage years, parent

influence declines and peer influence increases. Having meals together is a solid mechanism to discuss topics and at times override some of the expert opinion from peers. These routines are difficult to establish when children are older. It is best to do it earlier in their life – ie now.

Transitions from Prefered to non-prefered activities – Practicing the transition from a prefered to a non-prefered activitiy at home can assist your child greatly at school. Stopping a game and setting the table. Stacking the dishwasher, feeding pets…. Doing non prefered activities is crucial. If you can’t get your child to transition from one to the other, you can expect that a teacher may have the same issues in the classroom. Collectively we need to practice. Repitition is crucial.

Developing independence – Doing things for others. Working out that the world is not all about them. Plus doing things for themselves. Giving children a space to grow into. ie don’t unpack their bag when they get to school. Get them to make their recess. Let them walk to school…. Give them space with support.

WHEN: 6.00pm on Monday May 7th

WHERE: CLG STAFFROOM
