Communication is essential in any relationship. It would obviously be very difficult to understand each other and live harmoniously together is if we aren’t able to effectively relay to others what it is we want to say. One of the most difficult things to do is to effectively talk to your young children in a way that they will surely understand and listen. Many mommies struggle with this challenge. I know I have, and still do, even though my child is now six years old and has amazing comprehension skills. I guess sometimes it’s not just the listener, but also the person speaking who should learn to adjust in order to be able to ensure that his or her message is clear.
The good news is, Optimommy and Manila Workshops have put together a one-day workshop to address this issue, and teach parents how to communicate effectively with their children. The workshop is called “Yes Mommy: How to Talk so your Child will Listen and Understand”
About the Yes Mommy Workshop
At “Yes Mommy” we’ll talk about practical tips and tools to build a foundation of good communication with our young children. Topics include:
- Self Talk for Mommies: Why positive communication begins with you
- How to understand your child’s personality
- How to adjust your communication style based on your child’s personality
- The Three Elements of Positive Communication: Crucial factors to encourage your children to listen and understand
- How to say “no” by saying “yes”
“Yes Mommy” is called a workshop. But Optimommy, Jayme, sees it as really more of a sharing session where moms can connect with other moms, you can feel safe to share what we know and don’t know, and you can have comfort knowing that we are not alone in this parenting journey. After “Yes Mommy”, you ca expect to gain:
- Tools to start your day with calmness and intention
- Patience in dealing with your children
- Resources to communicate persuasively
- A network of like minded moms who can give encouragement and support
