Happy Child Happy Home

Would you like to learn more ways to strengthen the bond with your child, manage behaviour with ease and positivity, and bring more joy to your family life?
Parents in the Bellingen Shire will have the opportunity to take part in two public workshops focusing on positive parenting at Bellingen Youth Hub on Sunday June 5th.
The workshops, which are proudly sponsored by the Chrysalis Steiner School Parents and Friends and Bellingen Youth Hub, will be run by Lou Harvey-Zahra, a leading parent educator from Melbourne. Lou’s work focuses on equipping parents with the skills to bring more wonder, joy and magic into daily life.

Free Morning Talk

The first workshop is a free talk based on her book “Happy Child, Happy Home,” and will address the essential elements of childhood and what children truly need to flourish. This will include plenty of practical and inspiring ideas around positive family rhythms; fabulous play, craft and storytelling ideas; strengthening the parent-child bond and creating ‘happy families’. This talk will run from 10.30am to 12pm. There will be cake and refreshments to follow, provided by Zai and the fabulous P&F team. 

Afternoon Workshop

The afternoon workshop is entitled “Creative Discipline”. Learn tools to help create more relaxed and connected relationships, set limits while maintaining closeness and trust, transform behaviours in a positive manner, and teach children skills that will help them throughout their lives. Is it possible to discipline without using punishments and rewards? Lou Harvey-Zahra’s workshop, Creative Discipline, offers numerous real life scenarios and answers to commonly asked-questions, with time for personal sharing to end.
This workshop will run between 1pm to 4pm and the investment is $35 for singles or $50 for couples. We are please to announce that the cost of the workshop for all Chrysalis Parents will be even cheaper! All proceeds from book sales and sale of refreshments will go towards sponsoring your workshop fee. So the more cake you eat the more you save! That is how passionate the Chrysalis P&F and the Early Childhood Faculty are about you attending this event. We really want to to keep the cost as low as possible for current Chrysalis parents
