The Life Skills Series
Children need life skills taught to them at an early age so that they become more resilient adults later on in life. The topics in this series aim to provide both parents and children with the knowledge of different approaches, techniques, life stories and shared experiences so that parents would be able to go back and apply these to their children. Likewise, children will have a greater appreciation of why such skills are needed, making for less resistance in the home when parents try to apply these.
Who should attend these workshops:
We want to invite parents who want to learn how to teach their children life skills that may come in handy in various stages of their life. These are parents of children aged 6 to 17 years old who are going to school or are currently in Grade School to College. These are hands-on parents who would like the very best for their children.

Has your child ever been bullied? Has he/she ever been the bully? Bullying is wrong! It is behavior that makes the person being bullied feel afraid or uncomfortable. We want children to know how to not be victimized and to be armed with strategies which will empower them if they are being bullied. We want kids to know that it is ok to speak up, to tell and to ask for help when dealing with a bully. It does not mean you are a “tattler” or that you are “weak”.
