When it comes to training kids, how much is too much?
More than 40,000 parents, teachers and child psychologists attended a parenting training class in Brisbane on Wednesday, with some of the participants saying their experience was more than enough to make them want to do more.
“The kids I’ve taught have been extremely satisfied,” one of the trainers, from a family of four, told 7.30.
“We’ve been through this whole process where they’ve seen us come and go all the time, and then have the opportunity to come back, and they’re saying, ‘I’m really proud of you’.”
So I think we’ve made it worthwhile.
“The sessions were organised by the Department of Education’s Child Care Training and Education Committee and the Child Development Research Centre (CDRC).
They aim to help teachers and parents find out more about the different types of child care, and the different aspects of the programs.
The sessions also aim to teach parents about the role of parents in their child’s development, and how to ensure children feel safe in their own homes.”
It’s really important to have a conversation about the roles and responsibilities of the parents and how they should be involved in their children’s development,” Dr Peter O’Sullivan, a clinical psychologist who has been involved in the program, said.”
There’s a lot of misinformation out there about the relationship between parents and their children.
It’s really valuable for parents to be able to get their own children to understand the relationship that they have.
“Dr O’Sullivans wife, Ann, is a teacher at a school in Queensland and says that while she loves working with her kids, she does have her own experiences of working with them.”
My husband and I have worked together for over 20 years, and we’ve had lots of different kinds of kids, and it’s really been an incredible experience,” she said.
The program aims to help parents and teachers to better understand the types of programs and services available to children, and to make the process more transparent.
The focus is not only on teaching children, but also on understanding the needs of parents, as well as how to be a good parent.”
“There are so many myths and misinformation out about the importance of being a good family parent.”””
So this is really about getting children to be better educated, so that they can make decisions for themselves about what’s right for them.””

Dr Andrew Kelly from the CDRC says that the majority of children who attend his training sessions have positive experiences, with a handful of children experiencing issues like anxiety.
“This is an extremely important learning event for all of us to have in order to have children that are healthy and capable of understanding the world around them,” Dr Kelly said.
