How to be parents and not go crazy? Free classes with a psychologist for parents and carers of children. Is parenthood easy? Do we immediately know how to be a parent? Sometimes we think it’s simple. We have a lot of tips and advice on how to “properly” raise a child. But is there a universal parenting recipe that is sure to bring long-term results? What should we do when we try to be perfect parents, but the child screams, does not want to cooperate, and our word means nothing to him?
Fatigue, helplessness, fear and anger are emotions familiar to those who have a child. What to do with this? How to talk so that children listen and how to listen to what children say to us? How to take care of children, but also remember about yourself?
The answers to these questions will be found in the course for parents, which will start on September 8.
We invite you to join us on a journey during which we will look for solutions to difficult and important problems together.

The answers to these questions can be found on the course for parents, which will start on November 24 at the Community center/Centrum Pomocy Plicz-o-plych (Warsaw, ul. Chmielna 85/87 (1p.)
The course consists of 10 meetings, each devoted to a separate topic. We recommend that you attend all classes. Classes are free and held in Russian.

Can parents feel powerless? What to do when you’re a mum/dad and you’ve had enough? What to do when your child says “Go away! I hate you!”?
1st of December

What do our emotions tell us, where do they come from and how can we help ourselves and the child deal with them?
December 8
17:00 – 20:00 – Necessities.
What are the needs, how to recognize them and what do they signal to us? Is it always necessary to meet the material needs of the child and buy a new iPhone, Playstation or other things? How to say “no” from the position of love?
December 15
17:00 – 20:00 – Needs (part 2).
What to do with the child’s mood and condition when his needs cannot be met? Are your child’s needs more important than yours because he is a child?

“Will it go over your head”? How to take care of your boundaries without violating the child’s boundaries? At this meeting, we will talk about what boundaries are and see if we set them according to our needs.
January 12
17:00 – 20:00 – Labeling
“Lazy”, “clumsy”, “cry”. How do we unconsciously program children? Why is this happening and can it be changed? We will also talk about why some words have “magical” power.
January 19
17:00 – 20:00 – Communication without violence.
Language creates our reality. It is important how we express our thoughts, feelings and desires. Words can build bridges and break them. Non-violent communication consists of 4 steps that can help you build relationships not only with your child. This meeting will be about what our desires and experiences are hidden behind the words we speak. Together we will examine whether the words we use bring us closer or further apart.
January 26
17:00 – 20:00 – Cooperation and motivation.
Who does the child listen to when he doesn’t listen to us? Together we will find the answer to this question, and we will also talk about whether it is worth motivating a child and how to do it. What is extrinsic and intrinsic motivation, when does it appear and where does it disappear?
February 2
17:00 – 20:00 – Rewards and penalties
Put in the corner, scream, take your favorite thing for bad behavior or a bad grade at school? Can he give candy or other treats, buy a toy, or let him play computer games longer as a reward for good behavior? We will talk about what incentives and penalties are, whether they really help or can hinder.
February 9
17:00 – 20:00 – Self-regulation, or how to regain peace (of your child and yourself).
We live in a dynamic world where everything happens quickly and intensely: high expectations and demands, news, advertisements, short videos on social networks. How does this affect us and the baby? How much time can a child spend in front of a screen? What happens to our body when it is overstimulated and why is it so important to calm down and walk in the woods?
