Event description
Top ten parenting strategies you can start today that will enhance your child’s happiness & increase the harmony in your home

About this Event

Parent Talk - Fantastic fundraising event with renowned speaker, Catherine Hallissey, Cork based Senior Child Psychologist. In this seminar, you will learn the top ten parenting strategies you can use to enhance your child’s happiness and increase the harmony in your home.

All proceeds will be donated to the Road to Kinsale, a local community group who are helping a Syrian family relocate to Kinsale.

Every parent wants their child to be happy, confident and resilient. Yet, the pressures of modern life mean we often parent by the seat of our pants, reacting quickly in the heat of the moment rather than responding in a way that is consistent with our values and long-term goals.

The good news is that there is a large body of research that we can use to guide our parenting choices and everyday actions that will increase the likelihood that we will have calmer, more peaceful homes in the short run and that our children will be happier and more secure in the long run. This talk explores the most common everyday parenting issues and gives practical solutions that are incredibly effective. By the end of the talk, you will have the tools to begin today to enhance your child’s happiness and increase the harmony on your home.
