123 Magic is a simple yet effective behaviour management program for parents and carers of children between 2 and 12 years of age.
It gives parents a simple and structured approach to:
- Controlling obnoxious behaviour (arguing, whining, fighting, tantrums)
- Encouraging good behaviour (listening, going to bed, homework)
- Strenghtening their relationship with their child (praise, active listening, and shared fun).
Emotion Coaching teaches children to identify their emotions and become better at managing them. This enables them to take more responsibility for their own behaviour. 3 x 2.5hr sessions.

Social skills for children 3 to 7 years.
What social development looks like in kids.
The different stages for the different ages and what needs to be mastered at each developmental stage.
What skills kids need to not only survive, but thrive in the playground, classroom and home setting.
The fundamental building blocks of friendship – including assisting your kids to be positive, flexible and assertive – as well as the skills they need to deal with the pricklier elements of peer interactions – conflict, annoying behaviour and teasing.
This workshop will educate and provide parents with the knowledge and practical skills to empower children in regards to their personal safety. It will show parents how to upskill their child with strategies to help them stay safe. The focus of this ‘life skills’ program is to help prevent child abuse (including sexual abuse), bullying and high risk behaviours from childhood onwards. Parents will be taught how to raise the issue of personal safety in such a way that doesn’t leave the child feeling scared, anxious or worried. It is also done in a non threatening and non sexual way.
