We appreciate that there can be many different people who help to raise a child, not just mums, dads and carers. Extended family members and friends can all play an important role which is why our programme is available to anyone and everyone who cares for a child.
How we support you to help your children
Our program introduces mindfulness to the Early Years and helps make BIG feelings child size! You will be equipped with a colourful array of resources to help your children learn through play how to identify, understand, express and manage their feelings but also how to let go. When children feel overwhelmed they communicate the only way that they know how, through behaviour. This can be difficult for everyone involved, usually the main frustration is trying to identify the cause and not knowing how to support them through their frustration. Our programme equips you with a ‘go to’ structure providing reassurance and improving consistency so that both adults and children know what is expected of them. You will feel empowered to be able to support your children effectively and this in turn will strengthen bonds, whilst building confidence and self-esteem, improving wellbeing for all.
‘Our feelings form a rainbow within, and feelings come and go, everybody has them and it’s ok to let them show. Sometimes they need a little help, a listening ear to share. Other times they just need you to say, hello I feel you there. – Sunny Kids Shine 2018
