Fabic Video - Children

Video gold on Children

We all exhibit behaviours we would not prefer to be using at some time in our lives. And while this applies to all of us no matter what gender or age, the display of non-preferred behaviours is especially seen in children. After all, who hasn't seen a child mis-behave?

While it is important we all understand our non-preferred behaviours without any judgement or criticism, this is especially important around children because as they grow up and learn the skills they need to for mastering life, they too like us all, need the care and support that comes with this approach of dealing with behaviour change, as this allows them to feel the fact that making mistakes is OK and all part of the learning process of life.

Having worked with children for many years, Tanya Curtis has much to share on this subject and can offer greater insight into how children see and perceive things that adults may perceive in a very different way.

No matter who you may be, parent or not, there is something in these snippets of gold for us all. Enjoy!

Body Life Skills - Behaviours do not belong to one person…

Very rarely does a behaviour belong to just one person.

As Fabic Behaviour Specialist Tanya Curtis explains, if one unwanted behaviour is exhibited by one person is usually relates to unwanted behaviours that exist in others around them. For example in a family it is rarely just the behaviour of one person that Tanya finds herself working with, but the behaviour of everyone within the family as everyone's behaviour impacts of everyone else.

Parenting Tips - The Word No

The word 'No' is one that often prompts a person to go to red almost instantly as the perceived level of control that person has over the situation is seen to be taken away. But how often does no really mean yes, just when a certain condition is met?

Parenting - Live What You Teach

As parents we are to "live in a way where we would like our children to be when they grow up". Is what we are doing the way we would endorse our children to live in the future when they are grown up as adults just like we are now?

Parenting Tips - Embracing Your Role as a Teacher

The "whats next?" question is key with parenting. We must be seeing that as parents we are the child's life time teacher and are therefore more than just raising a child. We are raising another human being to live to their full potential.

Parenting Tips - Consistency and the Impact on Behaviour

Tanya Curtis explains that the key to successful parenting lies in our ability to be consistent with our behaviours no matter where we are on the behaviour scale. For example, a parents behaviour with a child when the parent is at code blue could be quite playful, yet when this parent is at code orange, they may refuse to play with the child and instead tell them off for things they would have otherwise not got into trouble with if the parent is at code blue. This inconsistency causes anxiety in children.
