“DO you know that there is a difference between meltdowns and tantrums?” asked Magdaleen Stadler, occupational therapist and convenor of growing sensory smart workshops for parents and professionals.

Stadler will be sharing her knowledge and experience with delegates at the Parenting 911 workshop this month.

The PE Express First Choice Kids and Baby Expo will continue its strong family focus this year with the launch of a new workshop, in collaboration with Early Childhood Business Forum (ecBF), called Parenting 911.

The workshop will be aimed at busy parents, au pairs, nannies and preschool teachers working with children aged three and younger, and will be held at the Boardwalk Conference Centre on Saturday, September 30, from 9am to 12:30pm.

The Parenting 911 workshop, presented by ecBF, will cover the following topics presented by field experts: Musickin through mothering – influence of music on learning and mothering, de-stressing parent and child, make sensory sense of meltdowns and tantrums, and discipline with love.

Stadler will chat to delegates on understanding that different strategies and plans are needed for different behaviours and will be joined by three other expert speakers at the workshop.

The delegate fee to attend the Parenting 911 workshop is R150, which includes a light snack and entrance to the expo.
