Hot on the heels of our Melinda Tankard Reist parenting presentation on Monday 8 September, we have another special treat for GCC families.
Glasshouse Country Baptist Church (GCBC) and Glasshouse Christian College (GCC) have joined together to bring Dr Justin Coulson to Beerwah on Tuesday 6 September! Dr Coulson is the co-host and parenting expert on Channel 9’s Parental Guidance, the founder of happyfamilies.com.au, and one of Australia’s most trusted parenting experts.
Here is Dr Coulson’s personal invitation for you to attend:
There are two sessions.
Session 1: Little People, Big Feelings! Tuesday 6 September 9:00 – 10:30am
What are we supposed to do when our child is having a tantrum? Losing the plot? Going off their rocker?
Most of our responses – no matter how well-intended – can make things worse. We tell them to stop it, calm down, cut it out… and they don’t! They get worse! We send them to their room, take the iPad… It all backfires. Dealing with little people’s big emotions (and challenging behaviours) in the middle of an outburst is tough!
Little People, Big Feelings is Dr Justin Coulson’s powerful guide to teaching children to understand and regulate their emotional world. Once they develop competence with this critical life skill, emotionally intelligent children will feel more confident and resilient, perform better at school, have healthier relationships with others, and even be physically healthier.
With lots of practical advice and time for questions, this is a topic not to miss!
Session 2: Parental Guidance: Tuesday 6 September 6:30 – 8:00pm
Is there a ‘right’ way to parent?
Researchers have been investigating this question since the 1950s! While everyone will do it differently, the research shows that there are certain things that the best parents do that are linked to the very best all-round outcomes in children.
In this presentation, Dr Justin Coulson, Australia’s leading parenting expert, will share the research behind the very best parenting, and identify specific strategies that parents can use to build happier, more loving families and children who are kind, competent and confident.
Dr Justin will cover:
• The evidence-based pros and cons of the most popular parenting styles.
• The 3 research-founded principles that underscore the very best parenting.
• Ideas for discipline that turn everything you thought you knew on its head.
• Skills and habits to help your family and children grow to be the best they can be.
This will be a relaxed session with lots of practical advice and plenty of opportunities to ask questions of Dr Justin!
