Parents and children have natural bonding. Children’s demeanour and actions would easily stir up our emotions. Sometimes we would content ourselves with our children but sometimes would go otherwise. If their performances or behaviours could not meet our expectations, we may feel disappointed, frustrated or stressed. If we hold different points of view on an issue from our children and disagree with each other, the parent-child relationship may be tense and it may even lead to refusal to communicate. Eventually, it may affect the trust and intimacy between parents and children. If parents could soothe themselves and understand their children’s thoughts and feelings when disciplining them, it would help maintain a close and harmonious parent-child relationship in their growth.
We are very honoured to have Dr Sandra Tsang, Head of Department of Social Work and Social Administration of University of Hong Kong, to talk about “How to Handle Emotions in Parenting”. Dr Tsang is a registered clinical psychologist of the Hong Kong Psychological Society and the British Psychological Society, a fellow of the Hong Kong Psychological Society, a registered social worker and an accredited family mediator. She has extensive experience in the fields of parent education and guidance. In this talk, Dr Tsang will have an in-depth discussion with parents about the definition of emotion, the factors affecting emotions and different ways in handling emotions in order to inspire parents and assist them in building a closer relationship with their families.
