Have you ever thought “is my child as happy as they can be?” Or “am I making the best decisions for my children; am I doing the right things?” Do you wonder how you can most effectively help your children to cope with the daily stress of life, whilst making sure that they are resilient, fulfilled, calm and most importantly…happy?
If you answered yes to any of these, then the Happy Children Wellbeing Conference is the place you need to be on Saturday 6th October 2018.
We need to know more to be able to help our children
We’re all struggling to make sense of a world that has become faster, more complex, more instant and less personal than ever before, and we want to ensure that our children are prepared for this future. We are a generation that has never worked such long hours, relaxed so little, been so connected and yet been so unfulfilled. Pressures have never been so extreme, and in our desperate attempts to make our children ‘happy’, we are sent into a spin of constant self-doubt as parents.
We’re now seeing more and more children with mental health challenges, some as young as 5 years old. The statistics show that 1 in 10 children suffer a mental health issue before the age of 10 (with this number increasing to 1 in 4 children as they progress through secondary school).
Following on from the extremely successful Happy Children Wellbeing Conference 2017, the second Happy Children Wellbeing Conference on Saturday 6th October 2018 will bring together a range of experts in their fields of child wellbeing, development, mental health and parenting skills who will offer their advice, insights, support and guidance to help your children to be the happiest they can be.
This is an event for parents, teachers, and anybody who works with children, offering professional speakers as well as a multitude of exhibitor stalls all there to help YOU.
The conference is being held in Hertfordshire at Brookmans Park School, AL9 7QY. Tickets are currently on sale for £44 + booking fee. Full ticket price is £55 + booking fee. (20% of all profit from ticket sales will go to Rephael House Counselling Centre (Reg: 1109437). Click here to buy your ticket for the Happy Children Wellbeing Conference 2018.
