PLS at Home

At Positive Living Skills, we know how challenging it can be to raise children in today’s world.

 

Parents and carers are time poor, and in many families both parents or caregivers if there are two in the household both need to maintain full time work to meet the financial demands of living and raising a family.

 

And with the rapid advances in technology in recent decades, it is more challenging than ever to help children become confident, caring, contributing individuals.

 

We acknowledge all the parents, carers, grandparents and all those who support children in any way.

“That’s the beauty of education, kids taking lessons out of the classroom into their own world where they can positively affect their family, their friends and their greater community.”  Erin Gruwell

Our philosophy or approach

 

At Positive Living Skills, we believe that every child has the capacity to reach his or her unique potential and that every child in today’s world must learn proactive and practical ways to look after their own mental wellbeing, starting in Early Childhood, so that when they are ready to transition into High School they have developed some procedural memory for how to calm themselves when feeling stressed, and they have tools to apply to help them to self-direct their thoughts, feelings and behaviours toward a positive life experience.

 

The teacher-led Positive Living Skills programs are made up of evidence based concepts, skills and activities that will help children build a lifelong skillset to self-direct their own thinking processes, emotions, actions and outcomes.

 

Ultimately, our purpose is to positively and significantly impact the alarming and growing statistics of anxiety, depression and suicide that our societies are experiencing today, and we know parents and families want to see their children grow to be healthy and, happy and to find meaning and direction in their lives.
