This workshop will guide parents to learn how to make discipline into loving action. Through practice, you will understand how to use positive words and praises to react to your child, how to cultivate your child in a loving relationship, how to avoid educating your child in anger, how to recognize the words of love from yourself and your child, how to use the words of love, and how to invest in your emotional account.
A parent’s love for their child is unconditional, but sometimes negative words or verbal abuse can also be inflicted to the child unconditionally. Parents should understand the power of words, because the choice of words can either build upon or destroy their child’s life, and praises or curses are the seeds that parents sow in their child.
This program is a six-hour workshop with three modules. It integrates theories and scientific findings to guide parents through practice, self-discovery and video aids so as to enhance their awareness. Being fun and interactive, the program helps parents to instill knowledge of brain development and cognition, to reflect from within, to plan and act, and to completely change their ways of interactions with their baby. The goal is to build intimate attachment between parents and their baby and to lay a solid foundation for their baby to develop a good character and personality in the future.
