The Power of Play to Calm & Connect

21/10/2021 12:00 pm EDT

Challenges & Solutions

Previously hosted live class. Access the recording and handouts by clicking on the Course Lesson below.

Overwhelmed with your child’s challenging behaviors? 

Hoping for more patience and struggling to stay calm? 

Think sometimes there must be a better way? 

You are not alone. 

We are built to reflect each other’s emotions. When children display intense feelings and behaviors, our brains naturally reflect those. We start to feel stressed, angry, or overwhelmed just like our kids. Join us and learn practical tools to help you be a calm center for your family. 

Young children thrive in calm and playful families. Play is the best way to help your child learn and grow. It strengthens the parent-child connection, your child’s love of learning, and enthusiasm for life. Play builds social skills and improves cooperation. We’ll offer a hands-on opportunity to play with your children at this workshop, including individual coaching and discussion with our trainers. 

After this class, you will be able to: 

● Apply simple calming strategies to use every day and during challenging times

● Recognize the ways play helps your child grow, connect and cooperate

● Apply every day, simple ways of engaging in happy and meaningful play with your child

Strengthen the Home & School Connection

Challenges & Solutions

Our Solution Series Libraries are developed around a specific parenting challenge. Each Series includes a collection of hand-picked, easily digestible (15 min+/-) videos which unlock a key piece of the parenting puzzle.  Read our summary of this Series below then click on each lesson to access the class description, video, handouts, and information about our Expert(s).

Teachers and administrators communicate with all stakeholders in a school community regularly. It can be a challenge to meet the communication needs of students, parents, and staff, all while planning, implementing and evaluating curriculum. The language parents and educators use to respond to children can actually help or hinder how they learn and how high their self-esteem is. Research has shown that once youth understand how their brain works and what they can do to optimize brain health, their social emotional health and motivation to learn increases. In this series, parents and educators can learn about the relationship between executive functions and emotional regulation, and how that affects academics in addition to stress and well-being.

Led by Peace at Home Parenting Amy Alamar, Ed D and Dana Asby, MA, M Ed, this series will explore how to:

  • Learn more about the connection between self-esteem and growth mindset
  • Learn how to use growth-based feedback to encourage children to take appropriate risks and feel more confident to try new things.
  • Give feedback using language that supports youth’s self-esteem
  • Coach youth back to confidence after a failure 
  • Learn about how stress affects different parts of the brain and the impact that has on learning and emotional well-being
  • Practice stress reduction techniques that can be taught to children or students
  • Make a plan for teaching children/students about how their brain works and what they can do to optimize brain health

Fostering Empathy and Belonging through Gratitude

Challenges & Solutions

Our Solution Series Libraries are developed around a specific parenting challenge. Each Series includes a collection of hand-picked, easily digestible (15 min+/-) videos which unlock a key piece of the parenting puzzle.  Read our summary of this Series below then click on each lesson to access the class description, video, handouts, and information about our Expert(s).

Peace at Home Parenting’s Amy Alamar, Ed D and Dana Asby, MA, M Ed, will introduce the research behind gratitude and share the benefits of practicing gratitude. We know a regular practice increases a  student’s sense of belonging, strengthens relationships, increases happiness, builds self-esteem, reduces stress & anxiety, supports  resilience, nurtures motivation, improves academic performance, and encourages engagement in extra-curriculars. We will also introduce research-based methods of practice including journaling, letter writing, and compiling a strengths inventory. Support for social emotional growth does not just happen during school hours – especially now, with so many families helping with hybrid and distance learning. We will also explore how young people can apply the skills they learn to strengthen family relationships and wellbeing and make an authentic home-school connection.

After this session, educators will be able to:

  • Define Gratitude
  • Identify the components of gratitude (Benefactor (person, thing or condition), Benefit, Personal Value, Cost,  Intention)
  • Coach students through developing meaningful messages of gratitude 
  • Explain how gratitude practices & technology can increase students’ sense of belonging, self-esteem and motivation.
  • Explore practices counselors can use to help students process emotions, behaviors, and decision-making.
  • Discuss ways counselors can support educators to strengthen student social-emotional wellbeing
  • Define digital citizenship 
  • Explore taking responsibility for your online interactions
  • Share gratitude practices to build digital citizenship, SEL, & wellbeing
