    Helping your child through friendship fires

    Helping your child through friendship fires

    It can be heartbreaking to watch your child struggle through friendship issues during pre school and primary school. Maybe someone in their group is being mean, maybe they feel they don’t have many friends, they feel excluded, they fight, or maybe they want to switch friendship groups. Whatever the challenge, it can be hard to know how best to guide them, when to intervene, and how not to put your own experiences and emotions into the situation.

    Host Amelia Phillips and parenting educator Gen Muir discuss the common friendship challenges kids experience, how we can best react in the moment and support them. They discuss the major friendship skills needed, how we can teach these, and daily strategies to try with your kids (for example the friend detective exercise). 

    About the guest:

    Gen Muir is a parenting educator, obstetric social worker, Mum to four and founder of Connected Parenting, a 1:1 and group coaching service for parents. She works with families all over Australia educating on connection and attachment with their children.

    Animal Therapy for Struggling Kids

    There’s nothing more concerning than when our kids go through troubled times, be it anxiety, depression, friendship fires, home life struggles or ill health. But could one remedy for this be right under our nose… the family pet? Or even a trip to a local farm for some equine assisted therapy. Host Amelia Phillips and therapist Lara Cook discuss how animal assisted therapy can be a powerful tool for children and the best ways to use the therapy with the family pet or in a specialised farm.
