The Secret to Good-Enough Parenting
May 16, 9:00 am - 11:30 am
The pressure on parents today to always be striving to be conscious, respectful, gentle and connected is well-intentioned but it’s also incredibly stressful. We’re all human and as parents we worry that we’re not getting it right a lot of the time. And we live in a world where there is so much information, comparison and competition that it’s easy to feel uncertain and guilty a lot of the time.
However, research shows that children simply need us to be predictably ‘good enough’ rather than perfect in our parenting, in order to raise happy, healthy, resilient kids.
So what is the secret to good-enough parenting?
In this wide-ranging masterclass, Maggie is joined by one of the world’s bestselling parenting authors, psychotherapist Dr Tina Payne Bryson, to share their very best gems of parenting wisdom. Together they will draw deep from the well of their combined knowledge and life experience and explore:
→ The value of being an imperfect, ‘good enough’ parent.
→ The simple power of showing up for our children.
→ Navigating big emotions and stressful moments.
→ Being the parent leader with loving firmness (and why boundaries matter).
→ The importance of lightness and playfulness in building relationships.
→ What’s really happening in toddler/teen brain development?
→ Why kids don’t listen or do as we ask immediately.
→ Transforming challenging behaviour.
→ The difference between punishment and discipline.
→ The keys to no-drama discipline.
→ How ‘muck up’ moments can become valuable teachable moments.
→ Understanding what’s really behind your child/teen’s behaviour and helping them feel seen and heard.
→ The keys to nurturing resilience and self-determination in our kids.
→ How to repair a rupture when we have been reactive and dys-regulated.
