Early years educators are often first to identify a young person’s behavioural and emotional support needs. They are integral in supporting parents to understand and address them. We teach you how to build children’s capacity to respond to everyday challenges and unexpected events by developing their capacity to understand, self-regulate and manage their emotions in ways that reflect the feelings and needs of others. Our programs support Quality Areas and concepts of the National Quality Standard.

Remember that injustice is something that children feel very keenly, so it is important for parents and significant adults to guide our children through these trying times. Parentshop has two programs for parents to assist children to manage anxiety and build resilience.

What if we could help our children not only be resilient but also be not so fragile. In these uncertain times, it could be one of the most important skills we teach our children. We need to be teaching our children to be stronger in themselves so that they can handle the high likelihood that life is going to be full of unexpected events, people who behave badly towards them, and challenging times.

Children, by definition, are dependent in nature. In other words, they are more affected by what their parents allow them to see than are adults themselves. The word tech ‘addicted’ is widely misused at present. Still, the reason we need restrictions on children’s use of social media apps is to protect children them from practices that are not good for them.
