STRONG Parents

Welcome to STRONG Parents, a 4-week holistic program to help parents support their children through life's tough times.

Both children and adults encounter worry and stress, which are normal responses to daily challenges. However, when a child is unable to work through these emotions it can feel overwhelming. As a parent, your instinct is to soothe their unease in the most effective and supportive way possible.

At Lemonade Kids, we're dedicated to building young people's life skills, confidence, self-esteem, and resilience with positive wellbeing tools and strategies. Furthermore, our goal is to support families to feel less alone through challenges their child may face by providing a community of support. As they say, it's takes a village to raise a child.

Lemonade Kids is partnering with three likeminded Brisbane businesses who are as passionate in supporting your family's mental health and wellbeing, as we are. Over four weeks, please join us in a series of engaging, hands-on sessions to enhance your abilities and strategies to assist your child through their worry and stress.

WHEN:

  • Monday 22 July: Bec Idiens, Youth Coach from Lemonade Kids

  • Monday 29 July: Emily Flourentzou, Adolescent Counsellor from Brazen Bloom and Psychologist Michael Plate

"Practical Tips for Tackling Screentime Challenges" 
Mackenzie Forrester & Fiona Foxon, Co-Founders of Screen Sanity Australia.   

Monday 5 August, 7pm to 8:30pm

When it comes to today’s ever-changing technology, it’s hard to sum up the nuance of what families are facing. So many of us ponder questions like, “How much screentime is too much?” or, “When do I get my child a phone?”.

The team at Screen Sanity believe there is no perfect approach to managing technology, but taking time to proactively set intentions, draw boundaries and start conversations can help to minimize the bruises and maximize the benefits.  

On this evening, co-Founders of Screen Sanity Australia will lead an informative workshop providing practical tips for tackling some of the most common screentime challenges. Through expert-led videos and facilitated discussions and sharing, the workshop will cover Screen Sanity's core recommendations for digital health, or, what they call them, STARTing Points. 

 You will leave with actionable tools and resources to support your children and the creation of your family’s own digital health plan.

"The Gut Brain Connection" 
Sammy Barnett, Clinical Nutritionist from Nutrition With Sammy. 

Monday 12 August, 7pm to 8:30pm

Explore the profound impact of nutrition on your child’s mental wellbeing through the lens of the gut-brain connection, with Clinical Nutritionist Sammy Barnett. 

From childhood to adulthood, Sammy shares her personal and clinical journey where she discovered just how much our dietary choices can influence the intricate ecosystem within us – the rainforest inside us. 

This internal environment can play a significant role in shaping your child’s emotional and cognitive development. 

During this session we will delve into the essential roles of gut bacteria, probiotics, prebiotics and supportive nutrients, which nourish beneficial microbes and enhance your child’s overall wellbeing.
