"Thank you for the chance to do the programme — it is the best thing I have done to improve my relationship with my kids."
"Tuning In To Kids" parenting programme ...
Tuning in to Kids™ is an evidence-based parenting program that focuses on the emotional connection between parents and children. In particular the programme teaches parents skills in emotion coaching, which is to recognise, understand and respond to children’s emotions in an accepting, supportive way. This approach helps the child to understand and manage their emotions.
Tuning in to Kids™ helps children learn to understand and regulate their emotions. Previous research has found that parenting styles can influence a child’s emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand and control your emotions, as well as being able to communicate to others about how you feel. Children with good emotional intelligence often have better emotional, social, and physical functioning, as well as fewer behavioural difficulties.
Tuning in to Kids™ is a parenting program that aims to give you helpful ways of teaching your child the skills of emotional intelligence. The program teaches you about how you, as a parent, can help your child develop good emotional skills. It teaches parents:
awareness and regulation of their own emotions
awareness of their children’s emotions
to use children’s emotional experiences as an opportunity for closeness and teaching
skills in assisting children to verbally label and manage their emotions
skills in assisting children in problem solving
to guide children’s behaviour with appropriate limits
Developed n Australia and fairly new to the UK, parents who have participated in the programme have reported that they found it very useful for relating not only to their children, but also to other members of their family, their friends, colleagues, and people they interact with in their lives.
