Understanding Children’s Emotions – A Parent’s Toolkit

This workshop for parents will introduce or build on previous knowledge of using Emotion Coaching techniques with children. The workshop supports parents to consider how children’s brains develop at various stages and explore the links between parenting styles and children’s ability to self-regulate. Using cutting-edge theories about neuroscience, taught in a simple and digestible way, we will focus on strategies to help children thrive and feel confident.

The workshop aims to give practical advice and takeaway tools which parents can immediately use at home to enhance relationships with children of all ages. We will talk about ways to help children calm down in the heat of the moment and how to create a peaceful family environment.

The workshop will be a mix of taught content, practical activities and group discussion, designed to support parents to feel more able to tune into their child’s emotional world and experiences. Parents who have attended this workshop have reported a long-term positive change in their child’s ability to express themselves and a permanent decrease in challenging interactions with their children. Overall, there is a greater sense of wellbeing for the whole family.

Areas of Focus:

  • How the brain develops in young children
  • Attachment and human instinct for connection
  • How the body and brain manage stress
  • Latest research on developing children’s emotional intelligence
  • Parenting styles - survive or thrive?
  • Why Emotion Coaching works
  • Emotion Coaching techniques
  • Tools to take away

Feedback from past participants….

“The Emotion Coaching course by Shana was great. Her calm and non-judgmental nature, expertise and resources were extremely useful in understanding children’s development and perspectives better and with that supporting parents to make more informed and enabling choices in their parenting approach. Highly recommend this course to anyone who is a parent. Thank you Shana!”

“Really helpful course, the small group worked really well and it was helpful to listen to other people's examples and questions. Would definitely recommend this course, I learnt lots of practical tips to apply everyday, thank you!”

“Learning about a young child's brain was fascinating and made some of our sons behaviours so much clearer. It will help to understand his emotional response to things.”

“Really great course. All parents should do it to get a greater understanding of what is happening to their kids during an emotional time as it certainly makes you think about how you deal with emotionally too.”

*Please note as well as the taught session I will also make 2 online modules available which will need to be viewed prior to the in-person session to compliment the learning on the day.

I’ve been made aware that this will be happening tomorrow morning (Saturday 20th August 2022) at Highgate Road Chapel, which is about 150 metres from Moon. 

I fully advocate for the freedom to follow your beliefs, so I thought I’d take a look at The Society for the Protection of Unborn Children website for some more information on what they’re about…

So… they “lead the fight for unborn children and mothers… fight for a fairer world.” There’s lots of talk of fighting… 

Here’s an interesting paragraph lifted directly from the website:

“Ideas about ‘choice’ and ‘autonomy’ are central to the abortion industry [industry!?]. In reality, however, many abortions take place because a woman feels she has no choice - either because of her circumstances, or because she has been forced by her partner, family, or even medical professionals. It is important to understand the reasons why women have abortions - including the horrific phenomenon of abortion coercion - in order that we can campaign for protections for vulnerable women and their children.”

You’re all intelligent people so I’ll let you make your own mind up about this statement. 

If you would like to peacefully show your support for a woman’s right to body autonomy then a gathering will be taking place outside Highgate Road Chapel, 2 Chetwynd Road, London NW5 1BU at 9.45am to 10.15am tomorrow (Saturday 20th August 2022). I’m currently in Ireland, on a family holiday, otherwise I would be there, making my feelings on this matter clear.

Did I hear you say
What are we so happy about!? @jencableart and I are plotting... 😁 Did I hear you say "social art project, focused on the realities of womahood"? Maybe... It's all kicking off in three weeks time, with the grand finale on Sunday 11th September, in tandem with the York Rise Street Party 🥳 Watch this space! #woefulwisdom #breakthebias #smashingsterotypes5 days ago
This 👇 A heartbreaking but all too real post from @root.medicine 

I’ve just had a discovery call with a potential client, having been vividly reminded how re-traumatising intervention during birth can be for those who have experienced sexual trauma/abuse ~ especially those who experienced this in childhood. 

When are health professionals  going to wake up to the fact that internal examinations, interventions, smear/pap tests can be devastating for those who have been sexually traumatised? 

Does it really take too much to ask beforehand if you have ever experienced anything which might impact on your birthing journey, internal medical examinations & procedures? Because from where I stand, I know this is doesn’t happen for many women. Only a handful of times have clients shared how genuinely empathic some consultants have been & the health care professionals who actually get this
EXAMPLES:
•Pap smears don’t need to be painful to be to get a result
•Understand the psychology of your patient lying down, semi naked, versus you, standing, fully clothed 
•Leaving doors open during internal assessments for others to wander in & out
•Inviting everyone & his mother into the birthing suite/examination room
•Sweeps by midwives with no compassion for a woman’s vulva & vagina
•pap test: 21-year-old woman “Oh just come back when you’ve had sex, I can’t get this in” 

Medical trauma is A THING ~ feeling disempowered, unheard, not seen, not consulted, marginalised & being scoffed at for stating “that’s not what my body wants” just adds a needless layer of trauma, disconnection, numbness, stress & anxiety. And you can feel this mostly in the pelvic cradle but also it impacts the already dysregulated nervous system 

Gentleness, compassion, empathy, listening & really hearing are skills that develop with experience & a genuine desire to help & to assist someone on their healing journey. Please always be mindful that words, attitudes & beliefs can impact & damage. Please teach this sh*t in Medical Schools
I have a session come available
