PARENTING TALKS FEBRUARY 2015
Dear Parents,
We know that good family relationships do not just happen; they require time
and effort. Family Matters (FM) @ ACS (P) helps empower and equip parents to
build strong family ties. Through enriching workshops, parent sharing
sessions, activities and resources, parents can learn how to build healthy
communication with their children and nurture positive relationships within
the family. FM also allows parents to interact with the teachers and other
parents in the school to share tips and get advice on family and parenting
issues.
Come and join us and gain confidence and learn positive and effective parenting
skills!

CHILDREN
SPEAKER
TIME
VENUE
: Dr Agnes Tan from Familywise
: 6.30 – 9.00 p.m.

Synopsis
Character development starts in children when they are young. Teaching
responsibility goes a long way because irresponsible kids will grow up to
become irresponsible adults. You want your child to clean her room, but it’s a
disaster. You ask your child to put his clothes into the washing machine, but
instead they’re strewn all over his room. How can you get your child to take
responsibility when he or she refuses to accept it? At what age is your child
responsible for his/her actions? This talk will provide tips on how to raise
responsible kids.

COUNSELLING SKILLS

TIME
VENUE

Synopsis
Parenting is perhaps our most difficult job, and the most important
responsibility that we may ever have in our lives. Unfortunately, we receive
little or no formal training in parenting, unless a crisis emerges. Often many
parents either do what our parents did, or attempt the exact opposite,
depending on our opinion of the parenting we received. No one provides us
with clear guidelines about the right way to parent.
Many diligent parents have tried to attend parenting talks and workshops to
improve their parenting skills. However, they still may be lost and do not know
what to do when their children face some problems in school or at home
especially if they have teenage children. One of the common problems facing
parents is that they do not know the “hows” of approaching a subject and
helping their children learn from the challenge.
In this workshop, you will learn some basic and practical counseling skills that
will empower you to help your children walk through the difficult phases or
struggles of their life.
