Tuning in to Kids

Tuning in to Kids is a six-session parenting programme for parents of aged 3yrs to 8yrs about emotionally intelligent parenting programme.

Would you like to learn how to:

  • be better at talking with your child?
  • be better at understanding your child?
  • help your child learn to manage their emotions?
  • help to prevent behaviour problems in your child?
  • teach your child to deal with conflict?

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.
  • tend to have fewer childhood illnesses.

Every person has the capacity for a huge range of emotional experience and expression. Emotions are a fundamental part of being human. Parenting or caring for a child is a particular kind of emotional joy bringing its own special rewards and challenges. For many parents, connecting with children during emotional moments is one of the most rewarding but also most challenging parts of parenting.

Human emotions are central for communication and connection. They serve our wellbeing and have an important evolutionary role in optimising our outcomes in life.
Tuning in to kids is a programme centred around emotionally intelligent parenting.

At Home-Start we are trained facilitators of the Tuning into Kids program and will be offering a 6-week program (Approximately 2 and a half hours per session, including refreshment break) for groups of parents or carers of children aged 3 years and up.

Sessions will be held at Alcombe Children’s Centre, Stephenson Road, Minehead. TA24 5EB.
