Parcours de fourmation: Parler pour que les enfants écoutent

The Faber and Mazlish Talking for Children to Listen, Listening workshop aims to improve communication between parents (or educators) and children.

  • Welcome the child’s negative feelings (frustration, disappointment, anger, etc.)
  • Express your anger without hurting
  • To arouse the desire to cooperate in children
  • Set firm boundaries while maintaining an open climate
  • Using alternatives to punishment
  • Resolving family conflicts in an atmosphere of calm

The workshop is open to parents of (future) toddlers, children, teenagers of all ages, as well as education professionals who work with children and adolescents.
