Parents Workshop

The pressures...

With the pressures that we are all under as parents these days and the personal sacrifices that we make in our hyper-busy lives in order to keep our families ahead, it can be difficult to maintain a supportive, engaged and fruitful relationship with our children at times. In the same breath, this important relationship is vital in order for our children to feel heard, understood and supported. By creating a much better and supportive environment for growth at home, we can help our children do better in school and live happier and more fulfilled lives.

Our Role...

As parents we are the first source of influence over our children’s development from the very first moments in their lives. We talk and read to them, we explain and demonstrate things to them, we try to foster beliefs and teach them values and morals. We, however, are not the only influences in our children’s lives. As they grow up and go out into the world, there are endless avenues of influence and pressure that await them. Nonetheless, it remains our role to help our children develop a healthy and well balanced relationship with the world that eventually prepares them for complete independence.

A family lacking healthy communication is like a ship without a rudder. It will flounder even in calm waters and will become dangerously out of control in a storm.

Strategy...

It is vitally important therefore, that we try to remain the most trusted and loudest voice in our children’s heads, for when we are not physically there to protect them from the new and the unknown experiences that life will inevitably throw at them. This allows us to give our children a good start in life and provide them with enough grounding, a solid psychological foundation that ensures emotional awareness and mental resilience. These are essential tools to help them stand fast in the face of all the challenges that they will meet on their way to adulthood.

“As teenagers, we all run to our best friend in times of trouble and uncertainty. The best we can do is as parents, is to attempt to be that best friend for our teenagers!” – E.F Omran

Communication...

Being able to communicate with our children effectively is the key to creating a trusting and dependable relationship with them. Learning how to foster these essential skills will help both you and your teenagers to communicate clearly and understand each other’s perspectives. This in turn creates an atmosphere of acceptance, trust and dependability which goes a long way in creating and reinforcing strong bonds between you.

“It is when we as humans feel heard, seen, felt and understood that we begin to feel safe and secure enough to be at ease and at peace; not driven by fear and anxiety based motives; no longer victims of misplaced survival instincts and casualties of isolation. It is indeed through effective communication, that strong, resilient and permanent bonds and relationships are made.” -E.F Omran
