***We acknowledge that the grammar is not correct:) Its done with conscious thought and science ;) Me comes first, because the most perfectly imperfect parents make sense and understand their past first. Research is showing us that the number one predictor of good enough parenting is a parent who has processed, made sense of their past and their upbringing. This allows for conscious decision making on how and who we want to be as parents, maintaining the best of our past and making anew on the areas which need some work. You comes second, as having curiosity and intrigue about what is fuelling our children's behaviour is vital. What are the feelings and needs which are driving these desirable and less than desirable behaviours in your child. What do I as your parent what to teach you my daughter/son? Placing our children at the centre, teaching them that "You are significant and important and always loved". We also have a strong focus this week on approaches to teaching, moving beyond punishments and using love not fear as the main basis for your parenting decisions. We is final, because our brains and nervous systems are linked. We have wonderful mirror neurons which fire because we are hardwired for connection with other people. These amazing neurons will fire because they are firing in someone else...ie I see you eating an ice-cream and my ice-cream eating neurons fire as well. Our nervous systems are also linked, ever been having an awesome day and then one person enters the room who is angry and mad and the atmosphere suddenly changes. We sense their frustration and anger even though we where just having a great time. Our bodies will alter because of someone else. This is the same in parenting. The 'vibes' we give out teach our children about how to interact with us and visa versa. Our child starts to 'flip their lid' and their full blown not coping episode will set us off as well, even if a second before we were cool, calm and collected.
Our program is based on scientifically researched parenting strategies, child development, Attachment and Bonding, Education and Process Psychology. Researchers and psychiatrists such as Dr. Daniel Siegel and Dr Shefali Tsabary and parenting educators such as Tina Payne Bryson and Jason & Cecilia Hilkey are advocating the scientifically proven benefits for families who employ parenting strategies based on brain research, compassion and collaboration.
