Parent Skillz Workshop
6 reasons for better parenting & WHY Parent SKILLZ can make a BIG DIFFERENCE:
Have you ever had to prepare a presentation for a CEO or your supervisor at work so you can get that dream job? Did you go in prepared, or did you WING it?
I know you wouldn’t dream of just throw yourself into something with no advance preparation and seeing what happens. Most likely, you would prepare yourself, get advice, and practice until you get it right.
Yet for some reason, YOU feel hesitant taking the same approach to parenting.
There’s a perception that Parents should just know what to do naturally—that everything will fall into place if we just love our children enough. The thing here is, It’s not always so intuitive which decisions are the right ones.
Melody Johnson’s Parent SKILLZ Clinic Can Make a Big Difference
Do you want to set your child up for success?
Come to the Parent SKILLZ seminar and Melody will cover some of the following reasons.
1. Understand the Basics
Parent SKILLZ will YOU learn more about the stages of development and how they learn and grow.
2. Stay ahead on the Latest Research
As a busy parent, it can be hard to stay up-to-date on the latest scientific research of childhood development—but it’s so important to learn what you should be doing to set your children up for success.
3. Learn How to Engage
Recent research has shown that when parents are in-tune with their kids, it is one of the most important factors in their child’s success. In a study which included more than 10,000 students, parents, teachers and administrators, researchers at North Carolina State University, Brigham Young University and the University of California, Irvine discovered that parents can make their children more likely to succeed in anything by regularly connecting with them, being in-tune with your child is extremely important.
4. Discover How to Match Your Parenting Style to Your Child’s Personality.
Parents try to understand the needs of their children, but it’s not always easy to figure out, especially when behavioral or emotional problems enter the mix. Parenting classes geared toward children with specific needs, or of specific ages, can really help you nail the parenting style/personality mix that best suits your child.
5. Help you & your child Gain Confidence
Parent SKILLZ will give you confidence as you deal with kids so you can pass that confidence to kids. You’ll learn that you’re doing it right most of the time, get a chance to meet other parents who are in the same boat and discover strategies you can use when you do need help.
6. Develop a Support Network
There’s one catch to this benefit: a parent SKILLZ seminar isn’t the same as a support group. Don’t go into the seminar expecting the discussion to center on your feelings and challenges the whole time. Instead, use the seminar as an opportunity to learn new ways while simultaneously getting support. Sometimes it’s enough to just be in the company of other parents who are going through the same experiences. Also, we have our own FB group that you can join 😊
$20 per couple for the event.
Attendees need not be members of 4GK. This event is open to anyone who has or works with children, including parents, coaches, teachers, daycare workers, dance/gymnastics teachers, and therapists.
