Parents Toolkit Workshop
Our workshops are designed to give you the parent some useful tools and methods that will help you, support your children with anxiety and stress and to help them build confidence and a mental resilience for life.
As parents we worry constantly about our kids, we want them to enjoy school and have a wonderful life. It can be hard as parent to know when to step in and help or when to step back and allow your child the freedom to grow.
You want to see your kids happy and healthy, but when anxiety, learning difficulties, social anxieties, stress, sleep issues, lack of confidence arise, it can be really hard to know how to help, who to turn to and what you should do.
Sonia Grant and Kerry Arslan have put their knowledge together to create the Parent’s Toolkit, using methods, tools, knowledge and experience they have gained over the years as, Parents, Development Coaches and Teacher. To create a workshop series that is aimed at helping parents, give their children a secure foundation and to help parents get through the roller coaster that is parenting.
