Elizabeth Murphy, Mollie Allen, Erin Smith - Doing the Parenting Dance: Autonomy at ages 2, 12, 20
Sunday, September 18, 2022, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM AEDT
Category: AusAPT Events

This virtual event is presented by the Australian Association for Psychological Type (AusAPT).

When parents first learn they are going to have a baby images of the child begin to form. Visions of playing and learning together are almost always positive. When the child arrives these hopes and dreams begin to be realized. Then the child walks and talks and has a mind of his own. Now the real job of parenting begins as the parents adjust their preconceived images to match the child and the child learns to manage his energies to develop into all he can be. This is the parenting dance everyone does, but the rhythms and tones are different for each parent/child combination.

This workshop explores common developmental challenges all children face and how type can play a part in the experience for the parent/child combination. After looking at the issue (such as the quest for independence at adolescence) educators will give examples of how this was expressed in the classroom and offer hints for working with the different types. Come enjoy a glimpse into the parenting dance with type differences for a few selected developmental milestones.

As part of our Type & Life Series, this event is online via Zoom, free and open to all.
