Parenting Workshops

Parenting workshops

A mother or father is born when the child is born. At that moment when you hold your baby in your hands for the first time, your child has already stolen you away from the rest of the world. You are completely changed by his or her entrance into your life. Before you know it, you begin exhibiting the beautiful and exceptional qualities of an extreme level of patience, love and care.

From the fetal period to birth, from babyhood to teenage years – their career, their married life, and beyond, a parent’s love for their child remains deep like the ocean and vast like the sky. Parenting has its many challenges and parents find unique ways of overcoming them. No child comes with a parenting manual.

There are ways which can help every parent become more skillful, understanding and intuitive in dealing with the situations that they are faced with. Meditating daily is one of the ways. It has the capacity to add more beauty to the poignancy of parenthood.

The Happiness Center offers two short workshops on Better Parenting.

Know Your Child

Raising children can be a huge challenge. In this competitive world, we want our children to be successful. As a parent, how can you communicate better with your children? The Know Your Child workshop provides insight into childrens’ behaviour and the issues that affect them. Learn simple ways to understand and respond to your children. Keep parenting fair, firm and fun.

A child’s point of view is vastly different from that of an adult. Their world is filled with wonder, full of amazement and excitement, innocent mischief, limitless possibilities and simplicity. In the first few years, parents and teachers constitute a major portion of a child’s external environment. There is a fundamental difference between the perspective of a child and that of an adult. As time goes by, a child slowly begins taking in ever more of their environment and starts expressing ideas acquired through observation of the outer world.

The Know Your Child workshop is designed to help parents to better understand their children and therefore dramatically improve the quality of family life. KYC offers a root cause analysis of children’s behavioural patterns which equips parents with the knowledge to assist their children blossom into their full potential. These inputs are vital to preserving the strength of relationship as a child transitions to teenage years and then adulthood.

When it comes to children, parenting is a sacred responsibility. Our responsibility is not just providing food, shelter, and education. We are also responsible for our child’s mental outlook, emotions, thought processes and behavior.
– Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Know Your Teen

The Know Your Teen workshop addresses the teenager and how parents and teachers can understand and handle them.

Teenagers can be some of the most dynamic young adults on the planet. Their creativity, dreams, and passion to learn and explore the world makes them both highly enthusiastic and energetic. Their interest in gadgets, computer gaming, electronics and the internet are clear indicators of their intelligence. Yet, teenagers can fall prey to negative influences, company and habits making parenting more challenging.

The Know Your Teen workshop helps parents understand their teenagers better and discover the root causes of behavioral patterns. It points out teenagers’ thoughts that adults tend to overlook, which often may have a deep impact on children. In short, Know Your Teen gives parents the tools they need today to skillfully nurture and support.
