Optimistic Parenting – presented by Kelley Chisholm

No one is in any doubt about how challenging it is to be a parent but too often the word ‘challenge’ is interpreted as performance, fear, guilt and doubt. When these perspectives overwhelm us then parenting becomes a high-risk task rather than an imperfect adventure. This session will focus on the foundations of ‘optimistic parenting’ – trusting yourself, allowing for differences, avoiding comparison and accepting mistakes.
