Conscious Parenting- Recognizing when our Child’s Needs Trigger Uncomfortable Emotions within Us

Facilitator: Rachel Walpert Fairbrother – Registered Psychologist

our psychologists at Pine specialize in treating anxiety

Description:

Sometimes we are unaware of how what our children are asking for can actually trigger feelings of distress, anger, anxiety or helplessness within us. We call this “shark music”, because it is scary and makes us want to withdraw, turn away or limit interactions with our child.

Children need help learning to regulate big emotions. If we distance ourselves because of our own discomfort, our child may learn big emotions aren’t safe to show or attempt to regulate on their own. Learning to recognize our “shark music” will allow us to be more responsive to our child’s needs and show them we are a secure base to go out and explore the world.

This webinar is perfect for parents with children, from infant through teenager.

Raising an Antiracist Child

Facilitator: Simone Moniz – Provisional Psychologist

Simone Moniz

Description:

For the last several months, systemic racism has been a topic of conversation and many folks are wondering what to do and where to start. This webinar aims to help parents learn some simple steps and helpful considerations when talking about racism with their children. We will be talking about developmentally appropriate things to expect and how to approach such a difficult topic with kindness, curiosity and respect. We aim to explore our own past learning by talking about bias and prejudice and how they are moving “beads on the thread of racism”. To raise an antiracist child, we must raise an antiracist parent. Years ago, Malcolm X said, “We can’t teach what we don’t know. We can’t lead where we won’t go.” If we want our children to go forward and be comfortable in disrupting racism, we must practice what we preach and ourselves become antiracist.

This webinar is for those with children ages 0-12 in your life.
