Here is What You'll Learn

Kids driving you mad?

It's no fun living in a war zone. Constant sibling conflict can really leech the fun out of family time. Arguing, bickering, teasing, name-calling, refusing to share, physical fighting and aggression - siblings can often get stuck in a negative rut and the whole family suffers.

Are you nagging, shouting or counting to 3?

Parents often find themselves in constant referee mode - or resorting to threats and yelling because that's the only thing that seems to work. All children need to learn how to get along, resolve their disagreements and behave in a polite, co-operative and caring way.

Why do children fight?

This positive parenting Masterclass outlines the reasons why sibling conflict occurs and the common parenting traps that we can all fall into. It looks at practical and effective measures to prevent and minimize sibling conflict and how to respond when it happens.

Practical tips you can put into action straight away

-Teaching co-operation and turn-taking

-Setting ground rules

-Coaching problem-solving

-Motivating change

-Using consequences

For parents/carers of children aged 1-10yrs

This Masterclass is suitable for parents of children aged 1-10yrs. It will be a small group so there will be plenty of time for questions.
