Free seminar: How to build better behaviour with your child - Kids First Children's Services

Little kids, big feelings and even bigger behaviours

When emotion gets too much for children to handle, they sometimes experience behaviour & learning challenges.

Loving parents do their best to support their children, but even the most patient mums and dads can feel frustrated by their kids’ refusal to follow rules, temper tantrums and defiance.

If your 3-6 year old persistently pushes your buttons, don’t miss this free Kids First Community Service Seminar!

With a focus on providing practical solutions for common behaviour challenges, you’ll not only benefit from the commonsense advice of two authorities in children’s learning, behaviour and development, but you’ll learn some tried and true behaviour support strategies that work!

Kim Shortridge - Psychologist at Kids First Children's Services in Sydney's northern beachesKim Shortridge – Psychologist

As a highly trained psychologist, Kim Shortridge understands how children learn and why they behave as they do. More importantly, though, Kim appreciates that kids don’t come with a rule book and dealing with a four year old’s feelings, frustrations and friendships can a challenging for their family. Kim is a certified facilitator in a number of well- known and respected group programs for adults and children, including Circle of Security, Triple P for Parenting, Cool Kids and Tuning in to Kids and her tips are not only practical, but based on the latest research into child development.

Want to build better behaviour with your child?

In this down-to-earth presentation, Sonja and Kim will help you to understand the things that overwhelm your kids and give you easy strategies for helping your children to behave better. You will leave with tips, techniques and tantrum-busting tactics that will help you and your family to enjoy calmer, happier relationships.
