About Us

 YOUR JOURNEY WITH THE CHILD-- the SCHOOL YEARS ! (and a bit more).

        

PARENTS COURSE is offering you their latest journey into soul development of the child.  We are presenting, for the enrichment of your soul journey with the Child, perceptions and practical advice on the child from before conception (where does the soul of the child reside before its journey to earthly life?) through infancy and childhood into the colourful transition into puberty/adolescence to maturity as a young adult.  A wonderful journey!

YOU CAN REGISTER ANYTIME DURING THE COURSE OF ANY MODULE;  RECORDINGS OF SESSIONS YOU MAY HAVE MISSED ARE AVAILABLE FOR YOU TO VIEW IN YOUR OWN TIME.  

We ask ourselves ‘What would a ‘healthy’ development look like?”  This is, one could say, the idealized and mostly unachievable image but one which we all strive toward and hope for in our child.  

And we look at the problems facing the child and the adult in today’s world with the many distractions and attractions which can damage the child’s developing senses.  How can we work with such problems which, in spite of the best of intentions, are impossible to avoid ?  

In this in-depth course, we look at how we can work with such problems and how we can bring protection, support and, if necessary, correction to help the child go ever forward toward satisfaction and fulfillment of their own uniquely creative Spirit.

Our wish is to be able to bring you a renewed depth of understanding of Child Development and practical ways that you can apply and practice in your own life as you, as parent, therapist , grandparent or teacher accompany and guide the child ever forward on the journey of life.

 

 

                            WHO WE ARE and WHAT WE WE WISH TO OFFER
 
PARENTS COURSE offers practical guidance for parents and teachers of children from birth to adulthood.

Course contents are inspired by the insights of Rudolf Steiner whose unbiased observations and clear concepts have introduced the World to a new direction in our understanding of child development.   We wish to pass this transformative understanding on to you.  Our intention is to enhance the theory with practical examples and guide-lines by bringing forward professionals who utilize their understanding of Rudolf Steiner’s world view in their practices.

 THE PARENTS COURSE presenters’ community is drawn from practicing professionals —- occupational therapists, art therapists, a learning support coordinator, a Christian Community priest, teachers, medical doctors and nurses.  Together, we form the PRESENTERS' COMMUNITY.  We spend a lot of time discussing, together, how best to present our content..  If there is something that you would like us to consider as a future course, please Email and we can see what we can do:  parentscourse1@gmail.com    So far, all topics have been asked for by you, the participants.  We would prefer to keep it this way because then we can meet the need instead of just making abstract guesses.

 THROUGH CLEAR EXAMPLES our courses will help you to see your child in a new way.  Therefore, our courses can also be seen as a path of self- development through which you will be able to work more harmoniously with your child.

This course on the development of the child is of relevance to your personal journey.  The course began on May 17th 2021 and runs on Mondays, most weeks,  through to the beginning of November 2021.  The whole course is arranged in 3 Modules of 8 weeks each: Infancy, Childhood, Puberty to Adult.   Each module forms a course in its own right. You have not been part of the first module (see comment below) but because each module is a course in its own right, you can still join one, or both of the remaining two modules --- just select the age group(s) of your interest and do one or two modules of 8 weeks each.

Comment from a participant in Module 1: "Just to say (again I know!) how great these weekly sessions are....just loving them so much. Big thanks to all the presenters ....a really wonderful mix of insights". 

JOIN US LIVE OR/AND VIEW THE RECORDED SESSION IN YOUR OWN TIME.  Did you miss the starting date of any module?  --- register anyway and view the recordings of missed sessions in your own time.

WHEN YOU REGISTER, YOU WILL BE SENT AN INVITATION TO JOIN OUR PRIVATE FACEBOOK GROUP.  THE RECORDING OF EACH WEEKLY SESSION WILL BE POSTED TO THIS GROUP SO THAT IF YOU MISS A SESSION, OR IF YOU ARE LIVING IN ANOTHER TIME ZONE, YOU ARE ABLE TO VIEW THE SESSION WHEN YOU WANT.

 FEES for this course are kept as low as possible:   Please talk to your friends about this course.  In this way, we can form an ever- expanding community of support and understanding of the development and needs of the child.
