Boundary Lines

Post image

19 October, 2 November, 10 November or 25 November

Our little ones have spent their first few years of life navigating some pretty big changes and many families are still living with the impact the pandemic has had on their children’s behaviour. After months of bouncing off the same four walls, and with few opportunities to burn off their pent-up energy with other pre-schoolers, we know some days it’ll have been tough to say ‘no’ when we need a break!

So what can we do when their cheeky behaviour that may have once seemed ‘harmless’ or even ‘cute’, starts to wear thin?

Research shows that boundaries matter. Far from restricting character or creativity, clear expectations give young children the security they need to thrive as adults. That’s why this event is full of practical tips for creating loving limits – and sticking to them! Boundary Lines will support you to use your parental authority, renew your confidence to stand your ground (and keep your cool), and enjoy time together as a family.
