Mothers looking for some help to handle their little ones’ challenging behaviour are able to receive some expert guidance thanks to Sharjah Ladies Club, SLC. As part of its vision to promote social inclusion and community cohesion, the organisation’s Collage Talent Centre is organising a special training course on February 22nd and 23rd, providing parents with support in dealing with stressful episodes created by their children.
Under the banner, ‘The Role of Family in Education,’ the two-day workshop at the Collage Talent Centre Library, SLC’s hive of creativity and learning, features Hamsa Younes who addresses behavioural and emotional issues relating to children, such as how to manage their anger and how to inculcate positive behaviour throughout the different phases of their lives.
Held at SLC’s headquarters in Sharjah, the course focuses on situations that can trigger negative emotions, such as clear or repressed anger, as well as discussing children’s relationships with family members and peers. It provides mothers with training on behaviour management techniques and teaches them how they can show their children how to recognise unpleasant situations and how to effectively respond to them.
The training course also addresses the influence of the Internet, video games and digital devices on children’s temperament and attention spans, discussing the amount of engagement that children should have with modern technology and the level of exposure that is considered healthy throughout the different phases of their childhood.
The 'Role of the Family in Education' training course forms part of a programme of social activities organised and hosted by SLC’s Collage Talent Centre, which also functions to discover the talents and develop the skills of SLC’s members and visitors. The centre was established to be the perfect venue for promoting and nurturing artistic talent through its provision of a variety of classes, which include pottery, jewellery making, ceramic flower arrangement, art, music, cooking, etiquette, and more.
