About the event

Tuning in to Kids™ is a parenting program that guides parents in ways to help children learn to understand and regulate their emotions.  We produly facilicate this program with our partners at The Poppet Centre.

Previous research has found that parenting styles can influence a child’s emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand and control your emotions, as well as being able to communicate with others about how you feel.

Children with good emotional intelligence often have better emotional, social, and physical functioning, as well as fewer behavioural difficulties.

Tuning in to Kids™ is a parenting program that aims to give you helpful ways of teaching your child the skills of emotional intelligence. The program teaches you about how you, as a parent, can help your child develop good emotional skills. It teaches parents:

  • awareness and regulation of their own emotions
  • awareness of their children’s emotions
  • to use children’s emotional experiences as an opportunity for closeness and teaching
  • skills in assisting children to verbally label and manage their emotions
  • skills in assisting children in problem-solving
  • to guide children’s behaviour with appropriate limits

Tuning in to Kids™ involves watching video material, group discussions and exercises, role plays, reading the information, and home activities where you try out different ways of responding to your child’s emotions.

Participating parents are encouraged to share experiences and ideas within the group and group leaders may use these as examples to explain and teach the skills of emotion coaching.

The Process of the Intensive:

The typical facilitation of the Tuning in to Kids™ program is one session per week for six weeks. The Poppet Centre has found that many busy families find this extended commitment a challenge, so we have created an intensive 4-step model that works better for our client group.

Here's how it works...

  1. One full day of theory and group coaching;
  2. One 90-minute individual coaching session with one of the facilitators within 6-days from completion of the full days training;
  3. Voluntary participation in our peer group open-ended coaching with other past participants; and
  4. One 90-minute review coaching session with one of the facilitators within 3-weeks of the first individual coaching session.

We find this approach is more flexible for busy families, and we are more able to adapt the coaching content to suit specific family dynamics.
