Suitable for parents, educators, child carers, home schoolers, student teachers, and anyone interested in child development and parenting, supporting children age 3 years upwards to develop essential life skills and characteristics through screen-free play.
Raising Can-Do Children is a fun, child-centred approach to helping children develop essential life skills and characteristics such as problem solving, resourcefulness, resilience, critical thinking, ambition, and many more. It's a tried and tested play based approach to learning which boosts the quality and enjoyableness of family life, and develops children's can-do approach to life, helping them make the most of their potential in a fast changing world.
The course is full of real-life examples of families raising can-do children, and everyday practical, non-screen based activity ideas, giving you the tools and strategies to immediately start putting into practice what you’ve learnt.
As well as recorded sessions, I’m also happy to answer any questions you may have at any point during the course, which means over time the comments and questions section will build into a great resource for you to access. After each session there will be action points for you to take away and work on. These may consist of questions to ask and explore, activities to try out with your child, and links to articles, or points of reference.
As well as the reviews from students here, I also want to connect you with comments from people who know and love the Can-Do Child® approach. These include parents, educators, pediatricians, and child psychologists.
