Parenting workshop

Understanding children, their aspirations, emotions and behaviour requires a conscious effort from parents. Children are under constant pressure to achieve, to prove, to appease, to be understanding etc. How does one connect to children, understand them? As children grow up, the disconnect and the gap widens. Communication breaks down and this impacts relationships. How to foresee and mitigate potential issues? How to build that understanding? How to empower oneself and one’s children?

Chetana is a 10-day parenting workshop that explores perspectives that enable the parent to understand his/her child better, improve adult-child communication and understand oneself. Fees: Rs 3000. Weekend classes are starting on July 28/29th at MagicHive, JPNagar 7th Phase. Ph 080-65706371.
