Dear Sibylla Kiddle School Families,
What are some of the complex things you have learned in life? Have you learned a second language? Maybe you have learned to excel at a particular sport or you have figured out the art of baking a cake from scratch. Learning isn’t always easy but it is often rewarding. Most of the time we don’t look back on our learning and say, ‘I wish I hadn’t learned that’.
One very complex learning skill many of us face is how to be an effective parent. I can attest, it is difficult learning. If you are like me, there are days you learn through trial and error, you learn from your mistakes, you learn that success rarely arrives in a day. One of the ways we learn is from the wisdom of others. On May 25, our School Council has arranged a parent night with Connie Jakab. Connie is an author, speaker, coach and most importantly, a parent, whose journey has not always been easy. She will be speaking to our parents on May 25, 2023 at 6:30 PM on the topics of anxiety, supporting children’s mental health, parenting to impact positive behaviour and helping kids flourish.
This is an evening you do not want to miss. I have personally heard Connie speak, I follow her on social media and I have been inspired by her weekly email distribution. She is a wealth of practical wisdom and ideas for supporting children. I am confident you will walk away with new tools in your parenting toolbox and the evening will be worth your time.
