Why doesn’t my baby go to sleep on his/her own? Why won’t my toddler listen to my simple commands? Why does my kid cry over silly and illogical things? We ask ourselves these questions as parents over and over but often there are no answers…at least not straightforward ones. Through Les Petits Pois, I can help shed some light onto how the child’s developmental brain works, through the different ages and stages, as they and we, as parents, learn to cope and thrive.
AS A BABY PLANNER, I PROPOSE THE FOLLOWING MODULES
- Bonding theory, how does it work?
Attachment grows with every interaction between the caregiver and the child. It also influences future relationships.
- Your child’s brain, how does it work?
Understanding the different development stages of your child enables you to have an adequate answer to the situation.
- From 2 people to parents, how does it work?
A guided discussion to better understand your vision of being parents and education. A very interesting session to see who your want to be as a parent.

Ways to accept children’s feelings, limit unacceptable behavior, and still maintain goodwill.

Some alternatives to punishment that enable parents to express their strong disapproval as well as encourage children to assume responsibility for their behavior.
