Communicating with teens
How do you maintain a good relationship with your teen? How do you gain access to their world? How do you develop positive and effective communication? This conference proposes avenues to explore in order to foster healthy communication with your teen.
Balancing work and family
In the face of everyday pressures and stress experienced by families, this conference helps you set the priorities and limits necessary to find successful balance. How to set objectives, establish structure and what tools can help you achieve work-life balance are discussed.
Dealing with divorce
You do not need to go through this difficult transition alone. This conference addresses four main topics: the child's needs during divorce, co-parenting, shared custody and family recomposition.
Child development, 0-5 years old
Child development covers lots of ground. Starting with a baby's brain development, we review early childhood development, breaking it down by stages and milestones. We focus on socializing, motor development, language, potty training, among many other topics.
Discipline 0-5 years old
How do you establish a good routine? What methods will help you implement your desired parental authority? A child's needs come first, and the best way to discipline them is to use a combination of approaches.
Discipline 6-12 years old
The parent/educator role transforms during this developmental stage. This conference will help you better understand how to maintain parental authority during this period of transition. Methods for maintaining a healthy family routine will be presented.
Every parent has been overwhelmed at some point by their child's anger, either due to it's frequency or intensity. All children, particularly between ages 0 to 9, have outbursts of anger. This conference will focus on methods to help prevent, manage and recover from these episodes and moments of crisis.
Parenting in a digital world
What are the pros and cons of social media and video games? How do they function? How does a parent navigate their child through a world where screens are omnipresent? This conference proproses general attitudes to adopt towards the digital world and provides concrete solutions to help navigate through it.
Let's talk cannabis
All your questions about cannabis will be answered in this conference from demystifying cannabis and it's different forms, to legalisation, consumption, and prevention. We will help you address your biggest concern: how do I talk about cannabis with my teen?
It is normal for parents to want to understand the psychosecual developmental stages their child will go through in order to accompany them well. From identity to orientation, and sexual expression, a child evolves at their own pace to define themselves as an individual.
A baby's arrival has a major impact on a parent's sleep routine. While dysregulated sleep is temporary, how can a parent adapt to this new reality? How can a parent help their little one develop healthy sleep habits?
Can siblings get along right from the start? The arrival of a newborn often triggers negative reactions in the older sibling. This conference helps you understand and manage sibling rivalries.
Mobile clinics, psychosocial intervention
Our counsellors will go on site to your company or organization, to offer private, confidential consultations to parents. Parents can confide in our psychosocial counsellors on all topics related to their children, parenting and the parent-child relationship.
