When you’re talking to someone do you think about how you’re sitting, the angle of your head, or where your hands are? Probably not, but you should. Because your nonverbal communication can say more than your words. While your words provide content your body expresses intent and can shape the tone and outcome of your conversation.
In this workshop, we focus on the affects of gestures and movements and how to use body language to create productive conversations.
When parents spend time talking to their children, kids not only learn the art of conversation but they also expand their vocabulary and views, and they learn how to express themselves, ask questions and listen. The kids feel like they have a voice in the family, which helps them gain confidence and feel more secure in life. And when kids are more confident, they have better self-esteem, better values and are more comfortable trying new things. All of which opens up all kinds of opportunities for kids in their lives.
But with today’s 24/7 demands, it’s hard for parents to put down devices and be present in conversations without feeling stressed, which can negatively affect the conversations.
This program teaches parents the necessary skills to decompress and stay in the moment, shows them how to guide creative conversations that will help kids be able to communicate with anyone in any situation.
