Tuning into Kids (TIK) is a free 6-week parenting program that focuses on the emotional connection between parents/carers and your children. It is designed to help you and your child cope with BIG emotions.
This evidence based program has proven success in improving parenting, parent-child relationships and children's emotional competence and behaviour. It has been shown to be particularly helpful for children with chronic conditions and anxiety.
Tuning into kids is designed to:
- Create meaningful connections with your child or children
- Learn skills to improve your child's emotional, social and behavioural challenges
- Improve your own emotional regulation and coaching skills
- Connect with other parents experiencing similar challenges
Who will be leading the workshop?
The workshop will be facilitate by our Support Co-ordinator Ruth Lindsay. Ruth is trained caseworker and parenting program practitioner and believes that TiK is a program that every parent and carer can benefit from.
“As a mother of two children, I don’t claim to be a parenting expert, but I do know that Tuning in to Kids is a program that I am excited about sharing with the NF community. It has definitely changed the way that I connect with my own children and has enabled me to be less afraid and more ‘in tune’ with their very large emotions and anxiety".
When you hear the word parenting program you might think ‘why would I need that, I’m a great parent, especially under difficult circumstances, I don’t want any one telling me what to do’. The brilliant thing about TIK is that it’s not about teaching you how to parent, it’s about giving you tools and tricks can help you manage some of stress and anxiety that parenting can bring.
During this program we hope to share some knowledge, connect parents with each other and also have some fun along the way.
