Tuning in to Kids for dads

Thursday 5 May @ 7:30 pm Thursday 9 June @ 9:30 pm AEST

Would you like to learn how to help your child manage feelings such as worry, frustration and anger? Dads Tuning in to KidsTM is a seven-session, evidence-based program designed to help you in guiding your child to develop emotional intelligence. It provides skills in emotion coaching, which is about recognising, understanding and managing your and your child’s emotions. When children develop these emotional skills they are better able to negotiate the ups and downs of life.
Learn About
  • How to tune in to your child’s emotion and their emotional experience
  • How to be better at talking to your child and create opportunities for connections with your child
  • New strategies to manage tricky moments
  • How to help your child manage their emotions and manage conflict
  • How to help your child have better concentration at school and make and keeping friends
While this is not a disability-specific program, it will provide dads and other primary male carers with an opportunity to use the Dads Tuning in to KidsTM approach to their child’s specific needs. It will also provide you with a deeper understanding of brain development and the vital role a parent plays in supporting and influencing our children’s decision-making choices.
