27 Aug   Love in Action: Discipline and Temperaments
Understanding your child’s temperament (and your own) is the key to creating a harmonious home and resolving family conflict. This LOVE IN ACTION workshop, run by popular parenting expert Galit Fisher, will give parents tools to bring greater cooperation and more effective communication between parents and children. Learn how to bring out the best in your children by making the most of their natural abilities and how to recognise what your child’s needs are when they act out or refuse to cooperate.

10 Sep   Love in Action: Discipline, emotional wounding and communication
Better behaviour is easily achieved when you speak your child’s language. In this practical LOVE IN ACTION workshop popular parenting expert and teacher Galit Fisher will teach you to identify what your child most values and the most effective way of communicating. When a child feels loved and heard the result is a more harmonious home, with greater cooperation and less conflict. Share your parenting challenges in this interactive workshop.
