Some children haven’t read the parenting manuals. You ask them gently to have a bath and they react as if you’ve asked them to drink poison. You count to three and they keep right on counting. The stricter you get, the worse it seems. You worry that you’re getting it all wrong.
It’s not your fault. You’ve got the wrong tools. You need low demand parenting – and that’s exactly what we are talking about in this webinar. Dr Naomi Fisher, clinical psychologist, and Eliza Fricker, author and illustrator, will guide you through the highs and lows of low demand parenting – and how to manage in the real world.
We’ll focus on siblings, sleep, hygiene and food, and we’ll show you how to approach the tricky issues, separate expectations from reality and help your family to thrive. Illustrated throughout with Eliza’s witty and insightful cartoons, this webinar will entertain you as well as inform you.
This webinar will be recorded and then will be available for two weeks following the webinar. Please chose the recorded option at check out and the recording will be emailed to you within 48 hours.
Previous webinar participants have said:
Really enjoyed the webinar. Actually feel relieved to know that I’m not the only one as a parent trying to deal with this.
This has been the most useful thing I have had since my Son was 4 and he is now 14, thank you.
I found your presentation both hugely informative and surprisingly comforting – there is a lot to be said for knowing you are not alone, that there are people out there who understand.
What you do is invaluable to neurodivergent parents and children, and actually, for all parents and children. I’ve always maintained that so much of what is recommended for parenting and schooling autistic children actually applies to how we should treat all children.
