“There is no such thing as a perfect parent only a real one”

Community Room

 

Moving abroad with children in tow can be quite challenging.  With arriving in a new environment and all the organization that comes with it, parenting may seem even more difficult abroad.  Although conflicts at home are normal, we sometimes feel overwhelmed and disconnected with our children.

This workshop will help you:

  • Gain new insights into your parenting
  • Understand the three pillars of parenting
  • Defusing conflicts at home
  • Develop strategies to support your children as they combine two cultures
