Parents and Families

Welcome to Positive Living Skills 

Cath Shaw - Founder

Families play a vital role in the Positive Living Skills initiative, and we acknowledge all the parents, carers, grandparents and families who support children in learning and growing to be healthy, resilient contributing adults.
 

On this page you will also find a range of complimentary resources from the PLS programs, for you and your family to enjoy.

We encourage you to introduce our programs to your Primary School or Early Learning Service. Click on the button below to download a flyer you can share with your Early Learning Service or Primary School.

When your School or Centre joins the program, you will be invited to join the Positive Living Skills Family Link, where you can access a wider range of wellbeing resources to support members of the family of all ages.

The PLS 'Family Link'

When the Primary School or Early Learning Centre that your child attends  joins the Positive Living Skills initiative, your family will be invited to join the PLS 'Family Link'.

Ask your School or Centre for a "password" that will allow you and your loved ones to join and access a range of online wellbeing resources.

PLS at home

We know how challenging it can be to raise children in today’s world with all the rapid advances in technology and an ‘always connected’ culture, along with all the financial and time demands of living and raising a family.

We know that parents and families want to see their children grow to be healthy and happy and to find meaning and direction in their lives and our purpose at Positive Living Skills is to support children to become confident, caring and contributing individuals.

Our programs support teachers and educators to assist children from Early Childhood to Year 6 to learn the essential social and emotional skills which will assist them to move forward with their lives, and we encourage all families to find out more about our programs and introduce them to Early Learning Centres and Primary Schools across Australia.

 

Together we can improve the horrific statistics we see of anxiety, depression and suicide in our communities.
