Addressing Behavioural Concerns with Families

The "Parenting Today in Victoria" study highlighted the pivotal role early years educators play in parents' lives. Yet, many educators find it challenging to bridge the gap. A staggering 98% of educators in a 2016 Parenting Research Centre survey expressed the need for training in partnering with families, especially in conducting meaningful conversations with parents.

To achieve the best outcomes for children, building respectful and collaborative relationships with their families is paramount. Join parenting and behaviour consultant Michelle Cuthbertson in this transformative course where you will:

  • Embrace the core values of genuine consultation and collaboration, positioning families as shared decision-makers.
  • Delve into contemporary parenting practices and understand the challenges many families encounter in guiding their child's behaviour.
  • Reflect on your daily interactions with families and discover ways to seamlessly integrate partnership practices into these ongoing relationships.
  • Master strategies to connect and communicate effectively with families, particularly when addressing children's behaviours of concern.
  • Equip yourself with the tools and knowledge to foster deeper connections and collaborations with families, ensuring a holistic approach to early childhood education.
