How2talk2kids training: The English edition


The English How2talk2kids training consists of 3 evening sessions (3 hours each). We will discuss 2 building blocks per session.

The How2talk2kids training sessions are based on the English book ‘How To Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk’ by Adele Faber & Elaine Mazlish.

The training will cover the six chapters (building blocks):

  • Dealing with feelings
  • Engaging cooperation
  • Alternatives to punishment
  • Encouraging autonomy
  • Descriptive praise
  • Freeing children from playing roles

In each session we discuss two of the building blocks of the How2talk2kids-method. There is a 2-week period in between sessions, so you will have enough time to practice the given skills at home. An e-learning programme will be available to help you prepare for each session.

Invest in the relationship between you and your child (aged between 0-20). The How2talk2kids-method teaches you to respond in a way that increases the self-esteem of your child, and decreases the struggles and conflicts at home.

Date: Thursdays – March 5th, March 19th and April 2nd.
Time: 19:00 – 22:00
Location: Amsterdam-Zuid
Trainer: Janneke Kemner (native speaker)
