Raising Happy Kids: Discussion Group
"Raising Happy Kids – Teaching Life Skills to Our Kids" TIME: 8pm DURATION: 2 hours ADMISSION FEE: €5/ complimentary drinks provided ROOM: Pine Room ABOUT SEMINAR: We all have busy lives, juggling work, domestic responsibilities and more… We still talk to our kids and try to teach them so much, and not just what teachers teach at school. We sometimes don’t have time to think about HOW we are teaching our kids these important life skills. "Life skills" encompasses a huge array of topics that prepare chilrdren for their adult lives. It’s been commonly quoted, "You need to have a licence to own a dog or car, and a certificate to work in a certain job, but to bring up children: NOTHING!" We want our kids to be content and at Tree of Life centre we are aiming to create an environment where we can discuss topics which can help us in preparing them for adulthood. What preparation should we get? The interactive participant-led group sessions aim to support caregivers in increasing their awareness, to improve and enhance their parenting skills by discussing the many topics around Life Skills. For example: * How do we teach the value of money, in the current materialistic world that we live in? * How do we teach about not comparing themselves with others, or trying to compete with what others have and do - the things that commonly make adults unhappy...
