Parenting-talk cum Family Bonding Outing

Dear RV Dads & Moms,

The first parenting-talk cum family bonding we have arranged for you and your family in 2016 is as follows:

Parenting Discussion Topic: Discovering & Engaging With Your Child’s World

Family Outing to: Tai Hua Food Industries Pte Ltd & Zoom Park

Date: 14 March 2016 Monday (School Holidays)

Time: 10.00 am to 5.30 pm

Parenting-Talk Synopsis

Children have a world of their own. In order for parents to engage with their children, they need to understand the inner and outer worlds of their children and how these worlds impact them.

Understanding the factors that influence your child will provide parents with a framework when communicating with your child, so that parents can remain a powerful influence in their child’s life. By engaging into your child’s world, parents can position themselves to be an external resource that their child will tap on throughout the growing years and adulthood.

This 2 hour talk seeks to give parents an awareness of the various “worlds” of their child and how parents can enter into their world with simple, doable techniques.

  • Understanding your child’s Outer world
  • Understanding your child’s Inner world
  • Understanding life-scripts that can make or break your child
  • How to enter your child’s inner world so that they can function well in their outer worlds with a positive life-script
