About the event

The SEEDS Project presents an evening with Glen Gerreyn from the HopeFull Institute. As a father of four, Glen understands first-hand how parenting can indeed be one of the toughest jobs in the world. He also knows how rewarding it is to see one's childrent growing up feeling loved, assured and closely bonded with their parents.

In this one hour seminar, Glen shares the five fundamental positive parenting tools, based on positive psychology research. You'll leave feeling equipped with the skills to better connect with your children and to empower them to tackle a complex world. Our first responsibility as parents is to enjoy our kids. Because how you think about being a parent deeply shapes how your child will see the world. When you are enjoying your children you are teaching them that the fundamental engine of what makes a family thrive and flourish is joy, not angst, depression, despair or destitution but joy.

Topics covered include:

  • How to help your child find a vision.
  • The rules of encouragement.
  • How to be where you are.
  • Teaching your children how to fail.
  • How to say you're sorry.
  • Making the home a refuge.

Testimonials:

"Thank you for your dynamic, energetic, positive talk last night. You raised many relevant points that my partner and I have been concerned about regarding teenagers in general. It can be difficult as a parent to explain to your son why our values, rules differ from his peers and why he may not have the same freedom others have, but be allowed a different type of independece that is set within boundaries."

"Fantastic seminar, really informative by a very down to earth, passionate and relatable presenter. I really loved the seminar and could have gladly listened to Glen for another hour. Thank you."

"Glen was in the moment and words were so true to modern day situations. He definitely was an inspiration and made me feel that persevering and putting some new strategies in place would help myself cope with the stress my daughter is under with her schooling and ATAR. My daughter was so blown away with Glen's encounter I could feel that her spirit was lifted ten fold. Truly worthwhile."
