In this compassionate and idea-rich presentation, you will learn why so many parents are struggling with feelings of anxiety, guilt, and overwhelm—and how this affects both their health and their parenting; how the health of parents affects the health of kids—and vice versa—and what this means for families who are struggling with challenges both big and small; seven things the parent of a child who is struggling really needs to hear from early years professionals (and how to deliver these all-important messages in an empowering and guilt-free way); seven proven strategies for connecting with parents and building trust; and eight simple-yet-powerful ideas you can share with parents to help them to feel calmer and more confident in their parenting.
