At Kin & Kind, we're all about the midweek, morning me-time. But we're hearing some parents are missing out (and others just want stimulating conversation at night. With wine. Or is that just us?) so we're thrilled to announce our first evening event, on a topic that's close to our hearts ... Raising Kind & Grateful Kids.
Teaching our kids to say “thank you” is important, but truly instilling a sense of gratitude in them is another matter entirely. Gratitude goes beyond good manners — it’s a mindset and a lifestyle. Likewise, kindness isn’t something we’re born with—it’s something we’re taught. At this dynamic panel event you'll hear from three wise and inspiring women who will be sharing their insights and tips on how can we help our kids learn to live gratefully and focus them (and ourselves) on what really matters by parenting for—and with—kindness.
And did we mention there's drinks?
MEET THE PANEL
Ruth is the co-founder and director of KIDS GIVING BACK, a local organisation that makes it easy for kids to do good, by providing volunteer opportunities for young people and their families. Ruth has volunteered with her own family both locally as well as internationally, wanting to instil her kids with experiences which would teach them compassion from a young age. She believes that when our children are deeply involved with giving to others, they inevitably gain as much as they give.
Rachael is a mum of two boys, a social worker and former deputy principal. She currently works at various inner city schools, facilitating "Tuning in to Kids", an evidence-based parenting program that focuses on the emotional connection between parents and children.
Claudia is a mum of three, a cheesemonger, and the superhero you’ve never heard of. Moved to action by the struggles and injustices that surround her, she regularly lobbies government and local council and appeals to the hearts of those within her orbit to care, to make a difference and to reach beyond their own apathy to change the status quo.
Evening event: 7pm for 7.30 start. Evening concludes at 9pm
Any parents and soon to be parents hoping to raise a generation of kind & grateful children
Vendor since 2017
Come along to our workshops and meet-ups and learn a skill (or brush up on old ones), talk about what you love, meet new people and spend time focusing on something other than child-rearing. Our broad range of workshops and events are eclectic and stimulating. Midweek events include an on-site creche!
Kin & Kind is about exciting the passion you once had but have lost in the fog of babies, kids and home, in a safe and supportive environment. We want you to leave feeling energised, with a sense of achievement that’s unrelated to the kids.
At the very least, you're 90 minutes closer to nap time.
