What is Tuning in to Kids?
Tuning in to Kids is a parenting program that helps children learn to understand and regulate their emotions. It teaches parents:
- awareness and regulation of their own emotions
- awareness of their children’s emotions
- to use children’s emotional experiences as an opportunity for closeness and teaching
- skills in assisting children to verbally label their emotions
- skills in assisting children in problem solving
- to guide children’s behaviour with appropriate limits
The research evaluation of Tuning in to Kids found that when parents learned these parenting skills, this was related to improvements in children’s emotional competence, social skills and behaviour. For children with behaviour or anxiety problems, the program was particularly effective.
What is the program?
The program is a 6-session group parenting program with a structured manual for the facilitator to follow. The manual includes a range of resources, including handouts for parents, a USB demonstrating the parenting skills showing families from a range of cultural backgrounds. The ideas and techniques taught in the program will be useful for parents of children of all ages, but are particularly relevant for parents of preschoolers.
What is included in the training?
The training introduces professionals to the theory and research behind the program and outlines the philosophical approach, which is a focus on valuing emotions in the parent-child relationship. The training then covers the key skills taught in the program in an experiential way. Participants will also receive pre-reading and video material via email.
