    FREE workshop for all Parents @ Glen PS Wednesday 13th 7pm

    PARENT WORKSHOP OVERVIEW

    Intro- A brief introduction of who I am and why I have created this workshop
    • My aim is to educate our children to be open minded and believe in the possibilities for their future.
    • To promote a ‘can-do’ growth mindset in our children, showing them that they are capable of anything they set their minds to.
    • Helping them to set high aspirations for themselves.
    • The most valuable lesson we can teach our children is how to be happy and confident with who they are. Everything else falls into place when children TRULY BELIEVE in themselves.
    I want to help children to learn more about themselves, through the power of introspection because the more we/they learn about ourselves/themselves the more we/you grow and the more your power will grow with you.

    I want to equip children with life skills that will help them navigate the world with SELF-BELIEF, OPTIMISM and RESILIENCE
    “I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed”. Michael Jordan

    SOME DAILY PRACTICES FOR PARENTS TO IMPLEMENT AS A FAMILY
    Gratitude- the power of gratitude to improve your mood and feel inner peace and happiness. To see the good and give thanks for the smallest of things.

    Affirmations - positive statements that can help overcome self-sabotaging negative thoughts.
    - Reprogramme the subconscious mind for positive thinking
    - Reduce fear and anxiety.
    - Encourages you to keep the mind fixed on what you want/how you want to feel/be rather than what you don’t.
    Goal Setting- creates a sense of purpose, something to work towards. Goals are for
    Growth Eg. Spelling tests, reading a book, riding your bike, swimming
    without arm bands



    Growth Mindset- our brains can grow and change, and we can ALL develop our intelligence and our abilities. This power helps you to rise to every challenge fearlessly and courageously with belief in your ability to conquer it.
    Your thoughts are the only thing blocking you because with practise you can do anything!!

    Emotional Intelligence- your ability to feel your feelings in your body and make sense of them helps you to better express your feelings. The things we feel, the things we do and how we behave are all linked by messages and chemicals travelling around our bodies, like code in a computer.
    These chemicals are called hormones, they are like a team, every player has their job, together the job is done well but if one player takes over it creates an imbalance in your body.
