Description

Children’s Behaviour: What does that look like now?

An evening for parents and educators to discuss behavioural and social learning, and teaching

What to expect:

  • Engaging presentations with a focus on understanding and supporting children’s behaviour
  • Sandi Phoenix will be presenting twice. Once with a focus on parenting and the second time around early childhood settings.
  • Learn about the Phoenix Cups framework and how to use it in action.

Who is it for?

  • Parents who would like to know more about the behaviour support strategies we use in education and care and how to apply them at home
  • Educators who want more information about supporting children’s behaviour
  • Educators who would like to know more about The Phoenix Cups framework
  • Also relevant for Educators who are already trained in using The Phoenix Cups framework, love using it, but want more ideas and strategies

What time do I need to be there?

  • Tickets include the whole evening but you are welcome to come and go to the parts of the program that are relevant to you.

Program:

5.00pm – 6.00pm: Networking and Discussion
* Networking and Q&A roundtable discussions with Wine and Cheese.

6.00pm – 7.00pm: What does behaviour “management” in parenting look like in 2017?
* The Parenting Manual (there isn’t one but what would it say if there was?)
* The Phoenix Cups as a framework to make better decisions about behaviour “management”.

7.00pm – 7.30pm: Roundtable discussions and cup filling games
* Educators and parents collaborate to create a cup filling action plan for children’s behaviour.
* Play with the Phoenix Cups resources to learn about your own basic human life needs.

7.30pm – 8.00pm: Behaviour “Management”: Is Children’s Behaviour Ours to Manage
* Parents, you may choose to leave here… or grab some more nibbles and stay for the end of the show
* Educators, you may choose to come all night or just arrive for this part of the program
* A story about two children in Kindy leading very different lives. Jayden and Sally attend the same early childhood centre, one with full cups and one with an empty cup. As you listen to their story, the Phoenix Cups framework will come to life as a visual metaphor for you to refer to as you start your cup filling journey.

8.00pm – 9.00pm: More roundtable discussions and cup filling games
* Closing questions at 8.00pm then mingling with more wine and cheese for those who wish to stay and discuss.

Participant learning outcomes:

* Explore reasons for children’s behaviour – even those that appear to happen for ‘no reason’;
* Unpack common tools used by educators to support behaviour and examine their place in today’s settings; and
* Consider new techniques for guiding behavioural learning.


What others have said about the event:

"I wish I'd done this training years ago. This workshop has completely changed the way I think about children's behaviour".

"Brilliant! This should be compulsory training for every single educator".

"I have been working as an educator for 20 years and this is the first time in years I've been so excited by a PD. I'm so glad I came. It's changed me as an educator and a parent. I'm looking forward to putting all I've learnt to practice".
