When you have children, your life becomes less about you and more about them. Your Facebook page is a constant display of their pictures, from the day they were born and possibly every minute after. You give your very best to them – the best clothing, shoes, food, school – every time and any way possible. Every detail of your live evolves around them.
Naturally these display of affection may be enough to earn us the title as “best mom and dad” but it is also important to be aware that there is more to it than just material things and that creating a deeper, stronger emotional bond with your child beats everything else. Creating that deep emotional bond starts with effectively communicating your thougths and actions in an understandable manner to your child so that your intentions may not be misunderstood or taken for granted.
HeartWorks is pleased to have Diana Kubilos, a social worker and health educator who specialize in women’s health and family life education to give a talk on how to develop stronger and deeper communication techniques with your child. This FREE 2 hour talk will give you some tips you can bring home to work on creating better relationships with your children.
