Getting children to school on time can be the most stressful part of the day. There is so much to take care of, it can leave you frazzled and drained by the time you drop off your children at school.
I created this workshop to help you to empower your children to take more responsibility for getting ready in the mornings.
This approach offers so many benefits:
It saves you time and energy because you don’t have to repeat the same things over and over again
It feels so much better to be a cheerleader (rather than a bad cop)
It helps children develop life skills that will serve them well later in life
It creates more time for what you want to do in the mornings
How it works
This five-part workshop will be delivered on Zoom in daily half-hour sessions: 15 minutes of training and 15 minutes for discussion. I chose this format because this time between the sessions will give you space to think, observe your child and apply what you are learning straight away.
If you miss a session, I can send you the recording of the training part of the session. The replay will also be available in the private Facebook group for workshop participants.
Dates and times: January 30 - February 3, 2023, 12-12.30 pm UK time.
Day 1 Ownership
What would motivate your child to take more responsibility for getting ready in the mornings? Figuring out this piece of the puzzle is crucial. It can change the dynamic between the two of you and move you into the cheerleader position, helping your child manage "their project".
Day 2 A clear list
Having a clear and detailed list of everything that needs to happen in the morning helps to chunk the tasks into smaller, manageable steps. It will be individual for everyone, and you will work together with your child to come up with your list.
Day 3 Welcoming emotions
Mornings can bring up all sorts of emotions - it's ok, it's part of the process. We will look at how we can help our children to regulate them.
Day 4 Your core values
Bringing about change takes time, and your child will need your support in this process. This step is about reflecting on what qualities you will want to draw on to guide this transition with empathy and patience.
Day 5 Sticking with it
It’s helpful to anticipate that, at some point, the novelty will wear off, and your child will want to return to doing things the old way. This step is about planning how you will stick with the changes until it becomes your new normal.
