Why is Space2Parent Unique
At Space2Parent we want to provide parents with space to access supportive advice, shared experiences and a place where they can feel heard. As it is our belief that for parents and carers to help their child effectively, it is essential, they take care of their own psychological and emotional well-being.
A Space of Non-Judgement
For parents to effectively help their child/teen, they need to feel both understood and supported. That’s why at Space2Parent we believe it is essential that we provide parents with a non-judgmental space to talk, listen and meet other parents. We hope that by offering you this space, you can begin to let go of your own unhelpful criticism and judgements about parenting and become kinder and more accepting of yourself.
A Space for Reflection
Giving parents a space for reflection is an integral aspect of Space2Parents work. Life can be busy, and when dealing with problematic behaviour and/or emotional issues, time to think and reflect on our own feelings and behaviour can become challenging to do. By providing a space and the skills to self reflect, parents can begin to consciously choose how to respond to their child’s demands and needs. This overtime offers parents and carers an improved sense of self-confidence and a deeper sense of connection with their child/teen.
A Space for Learning
Children and young people's needs are ever-changing as they journey through the many stages of neurological and emotional development. Learning to understand these stages in child development can provide parents and carers with valuable knowledge and insights into their child's world. This learning can improve a parents ability to effectively communicate with their child and understand how to identify their child's emotional and psychological developmental needs.
