Apart from the programmes and workshops, we are also able to conduct talks on a range of topics related to marriage, family, and fathering. They are 1 hour in duration (45-minute presentation with a 15-minute Q&A) and are suitable for events or lunchtime talks.
Stages of Development
According to Erik Erikson, there are 8 developmental stages in life and every one of them counts. A knowledge of these stages will provide parents with a framework by which to calibrate their parenting methods and focus. It will help them understand the needs of their child based on their age and how to support their child’s emotional growth and development.
Parenting As A Team
Traditional parenting times were divided along gender lines. Mothers were the child carers while fathers were the breadwinners. Modern parenting however had changed. The times are now more or less interchangeable. They are a team and must work as one. What can undermine this team? What must parents look out for? How can they strengthen the bond and understanding so that they can co- parent effectively?
This talk can be done in tandem with Stages of Development.
Parenting in a Digital Age
“At what age should children be given a mobile device?” That is one of the most common question parents ask. But is that the right question? Digital technology is here to stay. It is literally everywhere in our homes – not only the devices in our pockets but the invisible electromagnetic waves that flood our homes. There is no known way for us to insulate ourselves from it, so we might as well accept it. The key to managing technology well is to know the place it has in our homes and how to keep it there. We do not want our children to be fearful of technology but rather we hope that they will be tech-wise.
Play: More than just fun
We often hear parents say that their children are too playful and are not serious about school work. This talk will inform parents about the benefits of play, the types if play, and the dangers of play deficiency.
There is a “father hunger” in all of us. We are not looking for a perfect father. We just want a father and want to be a father to our children. This talk is based on a true story about reconciliation and reconnection.
Raising a Stress-free child
Children nowadays are under tremendous pressure to perform in many areas of their lives. The home is a sanctuary, a safe haven for the child. But, is it? This talk will help parents know how to reduce stress in their children and teach chipping methods to their children.
Though we have some ideas of a father’s role and responsibility, society as a whole, does not really have a clear idea what it represents.
How does the presence or absence of fathering impact our children? What do children need from their fathers?
In this fast paced society, it is difficult and rare for parents to reflect on the effects of their parenting roles and the parent-child relationship. As a result, the parenting process is seldom the result of basic decisions made consciously and thoughtfully.
This talk is designed for us to examine some of these questions and to help us meet the needs of our children.
