The Child Puzzle - What Makes My Child Tick?

(Understanding Personality and Behaviour)

This is a fun and interactive masterclass with a difference.  Not feeling listened to is one of the most common complaints among parents I coach.  Getting your child to do as they are told is also one of the biggest frustrations that we experience as a parent.

Often what we don't understand about other people is what irritates us about them.  Everyone has their own unique personality, understanding what makes your child tick will really start to solve some of the issues around how you click and clash with your child.  

 

I share the secrets to the "child puzzle" . Together we will look at the fascinating world behind the psychology of behaviour using the personality/behaviour model "DISC".

 

You will leave with the knowledge that will help you understand how your child responds to people, tasks, challenges, and relationships.  The workshop is extremely fun and interactive and you will leave with a different understanding of all your family relationships and how to grow and encourage your child's strengths and how to use their motivators to ensure your child reaches their full potential.

 

This masterclass is available as a 2 hour lightbite and also part of our Saturday 3 hour masterclass series - check schedule for availability
