Sometimes children's behaviour can be a complete mystery, and while we know we need to focus on understanding their emotions, managing thoughts, dealing with fear/anxiety or just building resilience, where do we start?
The Parenting BackPack App!
Built by true experts, ParentalEQ’s Parenting BackPack will support you as you take on the parenting challenges you face with your child. The BackPack is full of tools, techniques and a positive vibe to help manage your child’s emotional & social development
The Parenting BackPack App is for parents of kids aged 5-12 years old and covers a range of topics including understanding fears, managing unhelpful thoughts, navigating emotions, techniques for dealing with anxiety and much more.
Whether you are in 'CRISIS' mode dealing with defiant behaviour, sleep or school anxiety through to social challenges, tantrums & more. Or if you are in 'THRIVING' mode when you just want to proactively work on your child’s resilience and emotional well-being. This App can be the guide to help you understand the terrain and suggest some routes you might want to take.
The Parenting BackPack has over 20 different modules in 2 tracks (42 more modules being added between January & March 2021):
Knowledge: simplified psychology to help you understand your child's emotional & social terrain. Each audio module is always less than 10m in length and like a mini-podcast of parent-child psychology. All to get YOU, the parent (or carer) prepared for the journey ahead.
Activities: actual parent-child programs you do together, designed by experts and psychologists. Think of it as the map and compass that you use together to manage the challenge you are both facing.
Parenting is a journey and yet no one gives you a map or shows you how to navigate.
