Extra•Ordinary Caregivers Programme

Empower Your Parenting Journey!

At Extra•Ordinary People, we strongly believe in parents’ influential role in the development and progress of their children with special needs. We recognise parents as the most significant contributors, movers, and shakers in their children’s lives.
That’s why we have partnered with Positive Focus, a group equally passionate about empowering working parents, teachers, and children. Together, we are dedicated to providing evidence-based solutions that strengthen mental fitness, well-being, performance, and relationships.

Talk 1: Introduction to Strengthening Emotional Resilience

9th September 2023 | 10 am to 11.30 am

Introduction to Strengthening Emotional Resilience” is a workshop for parents to learn how to help their children become strong and resilient. We teach the Goulding Method of Parenting, which gives parents helpful tools for supporting their children’s feelings. The workshop discusses understanding emotions, feeling good about ourselves, and making good choices. We use real-life examples and fun activities to show parents how to use the Goulding Method daily. When parents and children understand and handle their feelings and make good choices, they can have strong relationships and a happy, resilient life.
