Circle of Security- Building Relationships
Sunday, October 8, 2017
1:00- 5:00 pm
UH Manoa College of Education

The Circle of Security workshop is designed to offer direction and clarity in understanding the dynamics of early relationships and their critical importance. Participating parents:

  • Better understand “challenging” behaviors and where they come from
  • Learned to read their child’s cues with more skill, helping to address a need and prevent power struggles or challenging behavior
  • Explored their own understanding, triggers, and biases when it comes to relating to their children
  • Gained confidence in understanding where their child/ children  are on the “circle” and what they can do to support their needs for exploration and comfort

5 Things We Want You To Know: An Open Letter To Educators and Parents of Young Children by Naomi Rombaoa Tanaka

Dearest Educators and Parents of young children,

First, thank you. Thank you for the countless hours and energy nurturing and teaching your students and children. Thank you for showing them the way, through your example and care. They are watching, even if it may not seem like it at times. It may not always be sunshine and rainbows, but we find it amazing how you still find the bright spots in the darkest of days. Thank you for wiping away those tears, brushing off those skinned knees after a tumble, and putting on those superhero capes… and yes, doing these things for the youngsters in your life as well. Thank you for taking care of you so that you can take care care of the keiki. Make no doubt about it, you are miracle workers. You don’t only make a difference, you make The Difference. Every single day, you make magic happen. Every single day, you have the potential to change the world. We are so grateful for you!
