Parenting workshop in Burnett
LIFELINE’S Community Recovery Counselling service will soon continue the workshop series they ran last year in the North Burnett.
The community trainings were a great success across the shire last year, and locals will again have the opportunity to attend sessions.
Margaret Knight, who will be undertaking the training workshops, said the feedback from last year’s workshops encouraged Lifeline to run classes dedicated to parenting.
“We want to look at what makes children behave the way they do, how we can understand their own private logic and how we can respond in a positive way,” Ms Knight said.
The topic of the workshop is Family Friendly Parenting, which is being run as a result of interest expressed by North Burnett community members.
The Family Friendly Parenting workshops will give practical tips and skills on how to engage, respond and offer support to children and young people.
By the end of the session, you will have simple techniques to try out, and also have the chance to discover your own parenting style.
Ms Knight said the workshops were meant to be practical given access to services can sometimes be difficult in a rural community.
“Part of my job will be finding out from the participants what their children are like and how we can best approach the workshop, so it’s tailored to meet their needs,” she said.
Sessions are being held in Monto on February 15, Gayndah on February 16, and Biggenden on February 17.
The workshops are free and will run from 9am to 10am.
