Parents

There's so many areas to navigate and its not always a smooth path!

Our children's education is more than learning and gaining knowledge in subjects such as maths, history, english etc. It's about developing the whole child. Recognising each child as an individual with all their idiosyncrasies, and nurturing that individual to maximise their potential, whatever that may be.
When I ask parents what they want for their children the following answers are typically given:
Happiness, confidence, health, love, kindness, self-worth, meaning, an optimistic outlook, ability to get along with people and understand emotions.

In short well-being or emotional fitness, but do we invest enough in helping them develop this well-being?
We all recognise the importance of physical fitness, indeed there are a multitude of training programmes and sports initiatives to develop physical fitness. So what about the training for the development of emotional fitness?

How do children develop the skills needed to develop optimism, resilience, self-efficacy, self-regulation, confidence, empathy, self-determination and positive relationships? We know that emotional intelligence is at least as important as IQ. People with higher social and emotional skills have been proven to function better in the world regardless of their academic intelligence. How do children learn about mindsets, and develop strategies to manage their emotions allowing them to flourish?
Nurture My Potential offers development workshops in all these areas. When children learn about their brain, understand the growth mindset, believe that they can develop themselves and their abilities through effort and hard work, (rather than holding a fixed mindset, whereby they believe that they can't change what they've got!) understand their emotions and importantly learn tools and strategies to manage them, they have an opportunity to flourish.
But we don't stop there, emotional well-being is essential for all of us.Using the analogy of adult passengers putting the oxygen mask on themselves on an aircraft before helping the children, we know that self care is essential in order to be able to give children what they need. With this in mind, Nurture My Potential also offers mindset and well-being workshops for the key stakeholders in the child's life - parents/carers and teachers.
