How to Get Your Kids to Do Stuff:
A psycho-babble-free look at what really motivates children

Proudly supported by Barnardos Kidstart Childcare

Cost: $20 Parents Centre Members, $25 Non Members

All across the world, it seems we hear the cry of a universal parent saying “how do I get my child to…” (you fill in the blank) Does this sound like you? You’re not alone! It could be the drag of getting ready for school in the morning, bedtime battles, fussy eating, homework blues, picking up the toys (or not!), bath-time recalcitrance, allergy to chores…There are many motivational arrests that drive parents to question: Can I really get my child motivated? Am I missing something...?

Good news. Our understanding about human (and child) motivation has undergone a revolution. There is a huge amount we can do to help our children to mobilize. Not out of fear. Not for a pat on the head. Not for a ‘gold star’. But because they want to help you, because they want to learn, grow and be empowered. In this talk Robin Grille will support you to reclaim your power as a parent and discover the key to your child’s self motivation. Robin will take a deep look at how to unlock your child’s motivation and most importantly he will share ideas on how to have fun in the process. Bring your questions along to this event to make the most of engaging with Robin Grille and other parents in the community.
