What Makes Us Different
Unlike many support group sessions in the market which can possibly devolve into a whinge-fest about in-laws, children and nasty teachers, we encourage parents to take responsibility for themselves and their children. This ensures that there are forwarding outcomes at the end of each Support Group Session.
Support Group Session Details
It takes a village to raise a child. In this fragmented fast-paced society that we live in, it can be difficult to find like-minded people whom you can share your parenting concerns with. Other than your extended family, who else can you count on when you need support when it comes to parenting?
Meeting once a month until the end of 2018, the Conscious Parenting Support Group Sessions provide a space where you can share your thoughts and feelings with people who face similar issues. Through the interactive exchanges, you can discover strategies, tools and insights that can help to forward you in your concerns, and help others too.
The Support Group Sessions are conducted by a certified coach and participants are actively encouraged to take what they learnt from each session back into their lives. Each small step brings about a positive change in your family life!
Parenting can either be an enjoyable experience or an obligation. It may not be an easy journey, but you do not have to go through it alone.
Join us and experience the sense of power that only a community can bring.
Who Should Attend?
This support group ssesion would be of benefit to you if:
You are a parent of a child up to the age of 6
You are considering or planning to have children
You are a primary caregiver to children
You interact with children in your family or work
You are an educator (family life educator, preschool teacher)
