Guiding your child’s behaviour

Wednesday 24 February

Guiding your child’s behaviour

This session aims to promote positive parenting through behaviour guidance and reduce the stress associated with raising children.

Canley Vale Public School in partnership with Families Together invites mothers, fathers, carers and grandparents with children up to the age of 12 to this seminar presented by Briget Gurton, Forensic Psychologist, Kids Konnect Psychological Services.

It is normal for children to behave in ways that are challenging for their parents. Children learn what constitutes appropriate behaviour and how to control inappropriate behaviour as they grow up.

This session aims to promote positive parenting through behaviour guidance and reduce the stress associated with raising children.

Topics include:

  • Understanding some of the causes of challenging behaviour
  • Skills to help you manage your child’s behaviour including rules and basic behaviour management strategies
  • Understanding the behaviour escalation cycle
  • Understanding what may be maintaining challenging behaviour

Families Together is for mothers, fathers, grandparents, carers and families living in the Fairfield, Liverpool and Bankstown local government areas.

Families Together is funded by the Department of Education and sponsored by Fairfield City Council.

Child minding is not available for this information session.
