Connecting parenting, Lael Stone's approach

From Afternoons, 3:10 pm on 28 November 2023

Every parent says they want their kids to feel loved, but in the middle of a meltdown or after being told no to lollies at the shops, kids don't always feel the love. Lael Stone is an Australian author, podcaster and parenting educator. She's in New Zealand for workshops about an approach to raising kids that's more about working on the relationship rather than just a set of skills to apply during the rough patches. It's called Connecting Parenting. Stone shares some ideas for helping kids with big feelings, some alternatives to punishment and rewards and how to help children understand that respect is a two way street.
