GOAL SLOGAN: I ACKNOWLEDGE THE EMOTIONS AND CHANGES OF MOOD IN MYSELF AND IN OTHERS
SOME THINGS TO THINK ABOUT.
The questions below are designed to help you think about how you can help from home with the skills development programme your child is taking part in.
- Do you show your children how to be responsible with their tasks and duties, in spite of how they feel?
- In family relations, do you try to set a good example of calm and patience even in stressful times?
HOW CAN WE HELP?
The suggestions below show when personal parental involvement is necessary. The aim of the subjects proposed is to demonstrate where you might be able to support your child and help him work on developing this month’s skill.
- Help him to put names to his feelings. When he tells you something, try to identify the feeling being expressed and tell him, e.g.: “I see that this situation is stressful for you”, “and that worries you a lot, doesn’t it?”, “It’s obvious that you are enthusiastic about this project.”
- Avoid confrontations or negative or tense comments towards your partner in the presence of your children, it would be setting them a bad example.
