Many parents feel overwhelmed and confused with the influx of information on the dos and don’ts of parenting.
Mississauga (PRWEB) November 07, 2012
Owned and operated by certified trauma counsellor and Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) practitioner Vivian Cannataro, Lodestone Counselling Services (http://www.howtocope.ca) is pleased to announce an upcoming workshop on the key elements of effective parenting. Lodestone is a Toronto-based provider of various therapeutic approaches dedicated to providing outpatient counselling to adolescents, young adults, adults, and families,
“Many parents feel overwhelmed and confused with the influx of information on the dos and don’ts of parenting,” says Cannataro. “As a result, many parents feel a lack of support while trying to do the best they can with what they know.”
This is where parent coaching and Lodestone’s upcoming workshop can help. The first worldwide to earn her EFT Cert-II, Cannataro will lead the two-day workshop, “Learning Your BCD’s – Key Elements of Effective Parenting,” which recognizes that boundaries, communication, and discipline are key in every parent/child relationship. The workshop will focus on teaching parents how to: establish, maintain, and enforce boundaries; learn healthy communication techniques; teach accountability; and discover effective consequences to unhealthy behaviours with their children, tweens, and teens.
“Parent coaching is not about judging whether what parents are doing is right or wrong; it is about working to personalize boundaries that will help maintain and develop family values,” says Cannataro. “Together, we work towards developing skills and practical tools to help guide parents through the natural struggles and conflicts that come with parenting.”
The workshop will be held Saturday, November 17 and Sunday, November 18, 2012, from 10 a.m.–4 p.m. each day.
