As parents, we all want our children to be happy and healthy; but sometimes we feel as though we have little real influence over them. New scientific research reveals that happiness can be cultivated within the home and that parenting styles and practices have a tremendous effect on children’s emotional outlook on life. By promoting some basic positive traits and harnessing their inner strengths we can encourage our children to have a more positive view of self, others and the world. Parenting can be challenging but also a positive and fulfilling experience. This short parenting course will explore some scientifically-validated strategies that parents can apply to influence their children in a positive way. Although the material will be geared more at younger children this course offers information that will benefit all ages.

The course consists of five informal lectures and discussion will facilitated each week. Each session is from 2-4 pm and tea/coffee will be provided. The cost of the course is €100 which is inclusive of folder, notes and CD. Fee is paid at first session.

Dates: To be confirmed soon. Venue: Monaghan town venue to be confirmed soon

I designed this new parenting course. It will focus on interventions which are scientifically validated that promote positive traits/characteristics in children – traits that will stand them in good stead as they grow older. This course will not deal with negative behaviour or offer strategies for reducing inappropriate or challenging behaviour. There are other courses available to help in this area and other routes to pursue ( i.e. professional intervention/support). My course will mainly examine what makes children happier and resilient. It will run over five two-hour sessions with a different theme highlighted in each class.
