Investigator College is excited to welcome Glen Gerreyn on Wednesday 1 June. Glen is one of Australia’s leading speakers in schools and provides insights into meaning, identity and motivating positive change in young people. Glen has been invited to speak at TEDx events and on national TV and radio. He will be presenting three seminars during the day, one to our Year 9 students, one to all College staff, as well as hosting the parenting session detailed above.
Below is a short summary of the Positive Parenting Seminar Glen will present:
As a father of four, Glen understands first-hand how parenting can indeed be one of the toughest jobs in the world. He also knows how rewarding it is to see one’s children growing up feeling loved, assured and closely bonded with their parents.
In this one-hour seminar, Glen shares the five fundamental positive parenting tools, based on positive psychology research. You’ll leave feeling equipped with the skills to better connect with your children and to empower them to tackle a complex world. Our first responsibility as parents is to enjoy our kids. Because how you think about being a parent deeply shapes how your child will see the world. When you are enjoying your children, you are teaching them that the fundamental engine of what makes a family thrive and flourish is joy, not angst, depression, despair or destitution but joy.
Topics covered include:
- How to help your child find a vision
- The rules of encouragement
- How to be where you are
- Teaching your children how to fail
- How to say you’re sorry
- Making the home a refuge
We are confident the seminar will be beneficial for all parents/caregivers, no matter your child’s age, and we look forward to seeing you all at the free seminar on the evening of 1 June, here at the College in the Performing Arts and Sports Centre.
