Parenting Webinar by Associate Trainer Mr Ahmad Taufiq


Managing Children’s Behaviour


Do you face challenges managing your children’s misbehaviours? Do you have to give many ‘chances’ to your children? Do you feel your children ‘climbing over your head’ at home? Do you need to ‘bribe’ them with treats and toys in order for them to follow your instructions? Mr Taufiq explores effective parenting strategies to manage your children’s misbehaviours without resorting to threats and bribes.

In this webinar session, parents will learn:

  • Common parenting myths and how to avoid parenting mistakes
  • How to prevent misbehaviours such as arguing, whining, bargaining
  • How to avoid the ‘talk-persuade-argue-yell-threaten-hit syndrome’
  • Strategies to manage temper tantrums
  • How to get your child to cooperate

From He Says, She Says to Mutual Understanding


“I can’t believe she did that again!!!”

“How could he be so inconsiderate!”

These describe some frustrations spouses can experience with each other. However, they can find themselves revisiting the same issues and situations over and over again till both are quite fed up. There must be a way to communicate what we truly feel and be clearly understood.

In this webinar session, participants will learn to:

  • Explore helpful coping strategies and avoid negative ones
  • Identify needs versus expectations
  • Learn the four-step process of making requests
