It is with great pleasure that I would like to invite you to a parenting workshop about Emotion Coaching. Emotion Coaching is a research-driven approach to fostering supportive relationships and nurturing emotionally regulated children. In the Junior School our teachers recently received some training in Emotion Coaching and our work in this area is ongoing. I personally hold a very high regard for Emotion Coaching as an approach to supporting children with their emotions and behaviours.
Emotion coaching is informed by neuroscience and operates on the basic premise that children are able to develop their ability to self-regulate their emotions and, therefore, their behavior, through co-regulation from significant adults. This workshop provides a practical and straightforward approach that will inform your parenting.
Please join Akane Yoshida, our MYP Learning Support teacher, on January 27th from 8:30-10:00 am in the Library (second floor) for what is sure to be an informative and empowering presentation.
Research has demonstrated that emotion-coached children:
-achieve more academically
-are more socially engaged
-have fewer behavioral problems
-have fewer infectious illnesses
-are more emotionally stable
-are more resilient
