We believe that human emotions are central to communication and connection. It is not until we communicate at the level of emotions that we feel a close connection.
We view children’s ‘challenging behaviours’ as a sign that they are struggling with understanding and regulating emotions and that they may need our help. When we connect to children’s emotions using empathy/responding in a way that allows them to feel understood – it is calming and this allows children to learn skills in emotional competence.
Behaviour problems are often reduced or stop when emotional acceptance and understanding occurs.
We build on the strengths that parents already have.
We recognise that every family is unique and that parents/carers know their children best. We encourage them to use the ideas from the practical parenting programs that work for them and their family.
