For Parents

Tuning into Kids

Book This Workshop

Tuning in to Kids® is an emotion-focussed parenting program. It provides parents and carers with skills in emotion coaching, which is about recognising, understanding and managing their own and their children's emotions. When children develop these emotional skills they are better able to negotiate the ups and downs of life.  Tuning into kids focuses on the emotional connection between parents / carers and their children, aged 4-10 years.

The evidence-based program has proven success in improving parenting, parent-child relationships, and children's emotional resilience. Most importantly, it is an 'evidence-based' program which means that randomised controlled research trials have shown that it makes a difference to parents and children. To date over 100,000 parents have attended Tuning into Kids® programs in Australia alone.

      Tuning in to Kids teaches parents how to help their child to develop emotional intelligence. Children with higher emotional intelligence:

       

      • Have greater success with making and keeping friends
      • Have better concentration at school
      • Are more able to calm down when upset or angry

      Tuning into kids is an evidenced based, emotion coaching parenting program. This six week course is suitable for parents of children from pre-school age to ten years. Parents of older children may benefit from Tuning into Teens.

      Tuning into Kids helps parents to:

      • Improve interactions with their child
      • Better understand their child
      • Help their child learn to manage their emotion
      • Help to prevent behaviour problems
      • Teach their child to deal with conflict

      “It is really important information for counselling with a trauma focus, and noticing where people are at, whether they are flooded or flowing. A whole lot of new skills for my toolbox that increase my confidence to do the work safely. The focus on the physiology brings a fresh perspective of ‘being with’ a person. “

      “ I went into the course thinking my parenting style was going to be addressed personally but this was not the case. The program was very inclusive and equipped me with the necessary tools to build better relationships with, not only my teenager but also, my husband. I am so pleased I was involved in the program. I learnt a lot, and have implemented a lot of ‘emotion coaching’ techniques

      “I took Phyllis’ course with my girls being 9 & 6 years old, and although its specific to teenagers, I have found it easy to implement with my kids from now. Phyllis was able to workshop and guide us on our personal communication styles, and it was great hearing other parent’s examples too. The course was very practical and a safe space to share, and I definitely had a couple

      I have previously attended a PD with Phyllis, and this presentation expanded from the previous PD, really cementing my previous knowledge on this topic. Phyllis and Anna both provided information that was easy to follow, and used examples of what this could look like in practice. The way the content was organised and easily understandable. The way it was shown how it can be used in practice, and the speed
