Do you wonder if having the family sitting and eating a drama free family meal is just a dream? Do the kids ruin eating times with complaints about the food, refuse to eat or eat in slow motion? Do you find yourself constantly reminding, nagging and bribing to get the kids to stay at the table and eat just a bit more? Have meal times become a battlefield?
We know that sharing a meal is an important bonding time for families. Families who have dedicated meal times where they all sit together to eat simply do better.
Happy mealtimes are not beyond your reach. With a few well-placed tweaks and tune-ups, those pesky attention seeking behaviours that have run riot can be brought to heel and meal times can start to take on a more settled and orderly appearance.
This workshop contains ideas and strategies that are applicable right across the board, not just at the dinner table.
We really enjoyed the interactive participation using the social window to help us understand the different styles of parenting and what our default style is when we are under pressure. We could have a laugh and learn. Bill reinforced the idea that consequences were necessary but were not about hurting or punishing children.
