Duration: 60 minutes

Meet the facilitator(s)


This is a practical workshop about how emotional regulation works and how to effectively teach your child about it in fun, engaging and meaningful ways.

Social emotional intelligence is a hot topic right now. Let’s dig into how it’s a key component of modern parenting and why you never learned it, so you can take away that parent guilt!

You will learn what’s happening in big feelings moments, how the stress cycle is involved and what steps you need to take to regulate and co-regulate in a way that works!

Please note: this class is intended to be attended by parents ONLY – please do not bring your children to this class.

This is for parents who are:

  • Finding it hard to keep your cool and regulate themselves
  • Finding it hard to support their child with their big feelings: tantrums, meltdowns, whining, crying, running away…
  • Have a child who refuses to use tools or pushes back
  • Wanting to learn how to build tools for feelings using proven methods that work

When to take this class

This class is intended to be attended by parents only (please do not bring your children; babes in arms are fine though). It is suitable to be attended by those those with children aged 4+.
