Let Go & Let Grow!
Secrets to raising independent, resourceful & resilient children in the 2020s
Suitable for parents of preschool and primary school
We live in a fast-changing, unpredictable world. Donald Trump, corruption, the Rand-Dollar exchange rate, the increasing cost of living, high unemployment figures, and disruption in the world of work because of technology, are just a handful of many things making parents very nervous about today, let alone their children’s future. When we feel out of control our response is to go into hyper-control, resulting in more and more helicopter & lawnmower parenting.
In this inspiring and insightful presentation Nikki Bush, well-known creative parenting expert, speaker and co-author of the best-selling book Future-proof Your Child (Penguin Random House), will convince you that letting go and letting grow are both essential to loving and parenting your children wisely so that they develop the twin X-factors of resourcefulness and resilience.
Parents need to be reminded of the fact that the ultimate goal of parenting is to let our children go – even into this crazy warp-speed world. Independence will also be our children’s ultimate request from us – quite a daunting and emotional thought for parents who are used to holding on tightly to those kite strings.
