The Tuning into Kids program is designed to teach parents and caregivers how to foster emotional intelligence in children. Through interactive sessions, participants learn practical skills and strategies for building stronger relationships with their children, helping them to identify and express their emotions and navigate difficult situations. By improving emotional literacy and communication, parents and caregivers can help children develop a better understanding of themselves and others, leading to improved mental health and wellbeing.

Children with higher emotional intelligence:

  • have greater success with making and keeping friends
  • have better concentration at school
  • are more able to calm down when upset or angry.

Tuning into Kids is an evidenced-based, emotion-coaching parenting program. This six-week course is suitable for parents of primary school-aged children.

Tuning into Kids helps parents to:

  • improve interactions with their child
  • better understand their child
  • help their child learn to manage their emotion
  • help to prevent behaviour problems
  • teach their child to deal with conflict.
