Potty Training:

Sue has worked with the NHS for many years supporting and offering advice to parents on preparing for potty training and solving problems, such as only passing a stool in a nappy, potty refusal, regression, constipation, bed wetting and behavioural challenges.

Potty training is a key milestone in your child’s life and can be very daunting to parents and children.

Parents can learn a lot about their child during this process:

How they deal with success or failure
How they process information
What rewards motivate them
It is a stage where no “one size fits all”, there is no perfect time to start as all children are different.
But being prepared before you start, knowing some key facts and factoring in your child’s own personality will help you achieve success.

This session aims to help take the stress out of potty training, give you tips and practical advice to increase your knowledge and confidence.

Guide you through potty training troubleshooting and any behavioural challenges and enable you to help your children achieve independent toileting skills and promote good bowel and bladder health for life.

What the session covers:

  • Importance of timing
  • Preparing the groundwork
  • How to know your child is ready
  • What you need to get started
  • The start day
  • Tips on leaving the home
  • Ways to make it fun
  • Trouble shooting
  • How to deal with relapses
  • And lots of resources to share via email following the session.

Sue is always happy to chat if you have any questions.

Toddlers Throwing Wobblers:

Sue has worked with the NHS for many years supporting and offering advice to parents on childhood development and challenging behaviours. She is Triple P trained, which stands for Positive Parenting Programme.

Sue is extremely excited about offering her “Toddlers throwing wobblers” workshop at the nesting place. It is a fun 2-hour adult only workshop.

The session will help parents gain an understanding of the reasons behind their child’s challenging behaviours.
Learn about possible triggers for them and their child to help avoid future outbursts.
Discussions at the session cover:

  • Different parenting styles
  • Triple p parenting traps
  • Positive techniques to help parents build a unique toolbox to help their little ones deal with their struggles
  • Boundaries and house rules
  • Calming techniques
  • Age appropriate play activities
  • Common issues like biting, hitting, breath holding, head banging

Parents are the experts of their own children and sometimes a little bit of knowledge and encouragement to take a step back and observe their child is all parents require. This clears their head so they can imagine what their child is feeling or what they need. This can sometimes be the key to a calmer household.

Sue guides, supports, and offers this encouragement through her workshops and one to one support. 
“You’ve got this”
Is often a sentence “littlelifesteps” uses with parents when supporting them through any sleep or behaviour issues.

The session aims to empower parents to feel confident to support their child with developing their skills of:

  • How to communicate and get on with others
  • How to manage their feelings and emotions
  • How to be independent
  • How to solve problems.
  • Support parents to build on their strong healthy relationship with just some small changes.

Lots of resources are sent via email after the workshop to use at home.
