Compassion And Understanding for Parents and Children
Mentoring for parents is about supporting parents in understanding and resolving the challenging behaviours of their children, their teenagers and themselves
Children are always communicating but who is listening ? Children communicate through what they say and also what they don’t say, what they eat and what they don’t eat, when they smile and when they don’t smile.
Adults also are always communicating but who is listening? As a parent my first responsibility is to listen to myself and find out what is going on within me and what my needs are and what the quality of my relationship is like with myself.
When we look more deeply at behaviours and see them as a communication about what might be going on with in a child it makes it easier to identify what their need is and to meet that need. When we look beneath our response to a child’s behaviour it makes it easier to identify our own need and to meet that need.
‘Children are not out to make life difficult for adults, they are trying to show how difficult life is for them.’ And of course adults are not out to make life difficult for children, they are trying to show how difficult life is for them.

Early language and literacy development begins in the first three years of life and is closely linked with a child’s earliest experiences of books and stories. These early experiences with language, books, paper, crayons and drawing are the building blocks for language, reading and writing development.
This relatively new understanding of early literacy development complements the current research supporting the critical role of early experiences in shaping brain development.
