Saturday 25th November was the big day! A one-day workshop on Developing Parenting Skills, which I had great fun leading. A wonderful group of thoughtful and enthusiastic parents joined me at the British International School in Stavanger for a day of reflecting, learning and sharing ideas. We talked about understanding ourselves as parents, understanding our children, listening and talking with them, and about managing the challenges of family life. It was a cold and frosty day, but we were fuelled by great food and cake, and a bottomless coffee pot supplied by local caterer Lize Fejd. Thank you to everybody who took part, and to Louisa for her help keeping things running smoothly. Biggest thanks goes to the parents, for their positive and curious approach. Your children are lucky little (and not so little!) ones!
