Know Your Child (KYC) is a 3-hour workshop for parents with children.
The viewpoint of a child is very different from that of an adult. A child's view is full of wonder, amazement and excitement, innocent mischief and simplicity. Then, as time goes by, the child slowly starts imbibing more and more of its environment, and begins to express ideas that it has acquired from observation. In the first few years, teachers and parents constitute the major portion of a child’s environment. Yet there is a fundamental difference between the perspectives of a child and that of an adult.
Because of this “cultural” misunderstanding, children often feel they are not understood, and parents feel frustrated as their child acts out. If this “cultural divide” deepens, the quality of the relationship between parents and children can deteriorate, creating a lack of closeness among family members.
Know Your Child is one of many educational course offered through the Art of Living Foundation. It is designed to help parents understand children better and thus improve the quality of family life dramatically. KYC does a root cause analysis of children’s behavioral patterns and equips the parents with the knowledge to help children blossom to their full potential. These inputs are also vital to preserving the beauty of the relationship as the child grows up to teenage and adulthood.
Know Your Child gives simple tips on how you can help children to:
- enhance creativity
- improve focus & concentration in studies
- be independent and responsible
- communicate better
- feel more free and natural
- respond to stress in an emotional healthy way
