Resilience and independence

Developing resilience and independence

This workshop has been cancelled due to personal reasons.

It will be rescheduled for the summer term - date to be announced


Does your child come to you to ‘fix’ their relationship problems and sort things out? Do they expect you to make everyday decisions for them but expect to be allowed to make their own when they want? Does your child expect you to do everything they need doing and complains when expected to help out or manage themself?

This two hour workshop will help parents understand the process of learning to be resilient and independent and the things they can do as a family or individual to support their child as they grow with sorting out problems with peers, taking care of their own wellbeing both emotionally and physically and knowing how to get the right sort of help from the right person when they need it.

We'll also be considering how we help children grow into self-reliant and capable adults and at what age a child should start to do things for themselves- from making their own packed lunch to changing their own bed and doing the laundry.


Date: TBA

Time: 7.30pm - 9.30pm

Venue: Barnes Primary School,

Cross Street, Barnes, SW13 0QQ
