MAGGIE Dent will present a parenting seminar to help build resilience and self-esteem in children.

The seminar is designed to equip parents with the tools needed to develop emotional intelligence in their children.

Local counselling psychotherapist Rosie Smith said children needed to be developing a skill set in emotional intelligence for a happier, successful life.

“Building the skills needed in life to navigate challenging situations begins in childhood,” she said.

“Maggie’s seminar Real Kids in an Unreal World will explore her commonsense approach to parenting children 0 to 12 years, and include a practical model of ten building blocks, and promises to leave participants inspired and ready to take action.”

“It is important that by the time a child reaches adolescence, they are well equipped to deal with the world outside their home as a solo-operator,” Ms Smith said.

“The ability to interact with others, feel compassion and a have degree of self-awareness are all very necessary skills in life, and are not always taught through the education system.”
