Feisty Roosters and Quiet Lambs (Busselton WA)

July 29, 2023, 9:30 am - 11:30 am


We’re all born with a particular temperament or tendency towards a particular demeanour and this can be seen as a kind of continuum. At one end we have our confident, feisty ‘roosters’, and at the other end we have our quiet, empathetic ‘lambs’. And while every single child ever born is a one-off miracle, there are some traits and influences like extroversion, introversion and the dandelion/orchid dispositions described by Bruce Ellis and Thomas Boyce that make up the puzzle of each child. When we can better understand these things, we can be better equipped to support the children, tweens and teens that we live, love and work with.

We also know that the first seven years are so important in shaping the future well-being of children. It’s when the foundations are laid for later learning and healthy development, including life-long physical, social, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual growth. 

As parents and educators, it’s important that you have the resources you need to not just survive, but thrive in your roles and to help you understand WHO each child is and how you can inspire, encourage and activate their learning while nurturing their sense of belonging and becoming.
In this seminar – which will be a combined professional learning/parenting education session – parenting author Maggie Dent explores not only her concept of the ‘rooster and lamb continuum’ but other influences that can challenge you as a parent and educator of young children. Maggie unpacks how better understanding our children’s temperament can guide us in our relationship with them.
