Connected Kids and Families
Who is it for?
Connected Kids and Families is a 6-session group, aimed at parents and children aged 7-12 years. This fun, activity based group aims to build closer connections between children and their parents.
What will it be like?
It is common for people to experience some initial anxiety over the prospect of participating in a group, and don’t know what to expect. Being in a group offers a safe, supportive environment where you can share your thoughts and ideas, and learn from others experiencing similar challenges. Group participants say they feel less alone, isolated and judged, and that groups help in finding new solutions to dilemmas or problems.
Our groups typically have 8-12 participants. The group facilitators provide information, create discussion, allow for self-reflection, goal setting and learning new skills. You will experience a positive, practical approach that builds on strengths within yourself and in your relationships. Participating in a group program is an effective way to gain the confidence to turn negative habits and cycles into positive ones, manage strong emotions constructively and create the future you want.
- Clarify your problems.
- Gain new perspectives.
- Work through change.
How can it help me?
You and your children will be guided to improve communication, minimise conflict and build stronger relationships through discussion, games and activities designed to encourage support and cooperation. Families also benefit from meeting and engaging with other families who are experiencing similar challenges.
The group program can help you to assist their children to:
- Build healthy relationship skills
- Develop positive behaviours
- Enhance self-esteem
- Talk about feelings.
