- Do you sometimes feel confused about how to respond to your children’s emotional displays?
- Do emotions sometimes feel like misbehavior to you?
- Do your own feelings feel overwhelming at times?
Emotional intelligence increases children’s self-worth and cooperation, it improves communication and strengthens the parent-child connection. Family conflict decreases with strong emotional intelligence and it impacts all of your child’s future relationships. This webinar will provide parents with concrete tools to strengthen their own emotional intelligence and those of their children. Even if you wish most emotions would just disappear, this webinar will help you find a path through the confusion.
This “live” webinar is designed for parents of children ages 2 – 12 years old. Following the webinar you will receive an email inviting you to join our private Facebook page on which you will have access to a community of caring parents like you, working to apply new parenting approaches. Our Peace At Home Parenting Facebook community will be a place to share challenges and successes. You will also have ongoing regular contact with Ruth Freeman, webinar trainer, through the Facebook community.
In addition, you will have access to free monthly “Question and Answer” sessions in which you will be coached in applying the skills you learned in Peace at Home webinars and again you will connect with other parents working to improve skills.

When your attachment needs are met, you are less likely to over-react to your children’s challenging behavior. When your own emotional bank is full, or at least not on empty, you simply have more to give in ways that children need. Continue reading
