Monday November 17 (from 6:30- 9:30 pm)

A Guidance Approach to Parenting

Dr Louise Porter's most popular seminar.  Dr Porter will explore the differences between controlling discipline which uses rewards and punishments to make children comply with adults; versus a guidance approach, which teaches children how to act thoughtfully

 Just as we do not punish children when they make spelling mistakes, so too we do not punish children when they are learning to behave considerately - but, instead, offer extra practice and guidance.

Alternatives to rewards include giving positive feedback without praising; while alternatives to punishment include supporting children to regain command of their own emotions and impulses, rather than punishing them for becoming out of control.


Tuesday November 18 (from 6:30- 9:30 pm)

Affluenza: Raising well adjusted children of privilege

Today's children of privileged families often experience two conflicting parenting methods: being coddled and indulged, with the result that they do not learn to solve problems for themselves; and being micro-managed and pressured, with the result that they do not discover their own goals in life but instead work only for external rewards. Both of these trends make it difficult for young people to 'own' their lives and to construct a true sense of self that will be the source of their strength in troubled times.

This seminar will detail how parents can support the personal development, emotional wellbeing and social acumen of their children and adolescents while, at the same time, encouraging intrinsic motivation so that they can accomplish in skills that are important to them and in this way fulfil their purpose in life.
