‘River of Hope’ on Line Group Pilot Program

Morning program to start at 10.00am
Duration:  90 mins per session

Mission: To empower parents with hope by strengthening their true self: building ongoing capacity to be confident in every season.

Purpose: To give parents who feel stressed, overwhelmed and anxious, proven practical tools to become a confident and strong parent leader – creating opportunities for connection and fun with themselves and their children.

Crossing The River of Hope to become a strong, confident parent leader

Why, what is the benefit?

  • Define self and values. Grow in self-efficacy.
  • Become strong with your true self -to be a loving and healthy parent leader.
  • Learn tools that empower you to be a strong loving leader
  • Increase capacity and resilience for you and your children
  • Increase opportunities for connection and fun with yourself and your children

For who: Parents struggling or dealing with:

  • Feeling confused, lost or disempowered
  • Shame, fear and anxiety
  • Triggering from past experiences-childhood or other
  • Just Surviving or living in chaos
  • Lack of identity
  • Reduced emotional or physical capacity

The metaphor for the course is crossing the river- crossing the river to become a strong parent leader.
This is for parents who are feeling anxious, stressed, overwhelmed that would like to become strong parent leaders.
It will incorporate a foundational wellbeing perspective of empowering parents to be able to tolerate stress, their kid’s poor choices, and anxiety.
It will provide a safe reflective environment of looking at one’s narrative by exploring their strengths.

Parents will:

  • Notice and explore their “worry” and gain understanding and tools of how they can manage it.
  • Begin to create daily habits of well-being.
  • Understand if they are making their child the focus or themselves the project.
  • Explore the concept that people are never the problem, the problem is the problem.
  • Learn how to change a relationship with the problem? (Self-awareness and setting  limits)
  • Have solid pathways to build connections and fun with themselves and their children.
  • Have skills to facilitate resilience and core self-confidence in their kids, whereby the kids are in tune to their inner voice and not just to the outside adult voice.

The course will:

  • Provide parents with concrete practical tools to disengage and not escalate an argument. Train and support parents to develop empathy and love to keep the lines of communication open.
  • Setting clear limits with ‘I’ statements.
  • Give choices that work within parent’s value systems whilst sharing the control with their children.
  • Build capacity, resilience and confidence in kids by giving kids tools to solve their own problems.
  • Give children the value of being powerful contributors and a sense of belonging with chores (contributions).

Course Outline

  • Session 1 – Practical one line responses repeated to not enter into a protest or argument.
  • Session 2- Developing one-liner empathy statements that build connection whilst setting limits. “Draining Energy” technique and other ideas for holding kids accountable for poor choices. The child’s poor choice is the ‘bad guy’, not the parent.
  • Session 3- The power of using ‘I’ statements instead of ‘You’ statements. The parent focuses on their values.
  • Session 4- Teaching parents the power of sharing control and giving choices to reduce unwinnable power struggles.
  • Session 5- Building resiliency for our kids to own and solve their own problems. Working with a proven scaffold to facilitate the process.
  • Session 6- Building a sense of belonging that everyone is a powerful contributor in the family. Parents upskilling their children to become responsible in the family, in their relationships as an employee and community members.

Cost: $100 per family.

We have had the privilege of attending the Love and Logic course earlier this year, and subsequently hosted the course for two groups. Having done the course twice, we can highly recommend doing it. It has really changed how we parent our children. There is much more Love in our home now and the kids (and ourselves) are learning what the Logical consequences to their actions are.

Our kids are able to do so much more for themselves than we would have imaged a year ago. Christine has been so open and honest as a facilitator. She shares her Love and Logic journey in a way which empowers participants and gets them to think and be challenge. Thank you Christine for sharing parts of your life with us and for encouraging us to keep going with this parenting journey!

Testimonial: Going to a Teaching Kids For Life course using the Love and LogicTM material gave me valuable parenting tools and increased my confidence as a parent. We no longer have arguments in our home, and life is much more peaceful. I have learnt how to keep me under control, and am now parenting my 3 kids with more demonstrated love, and logical consequences.

  • How would you like to de-escalate the tension with one line?

  • Are you exhausted and frustrated with getting the kids to bed at night?

  • Would you like to you enjoy your ‘me time’ earlier in the evening feeling more relaxed?

– We cannot control our kids choices but we can powerfully control ourselves, and allow our kids to learn from their mistakes

– We are able to facilitate our childrens’ ability to make powerful – choices to act responsibly and develop resilience

– Empathy opens the heart and mind to learn while anger and frustration builds a wall of defence

– When we solve all of our children’s problems, they become insecure and resentful. When we guide them toward solving their own problems, they become secure and respectful
