DECODE YOUR CHILD’S GENIUS: expand minds, connect hearts

Cathy Domoney is acutely aware of factors which allow for a child’s inner genius to shine, and those that don’t. Parents out there, be encouraged! This is not about fault-finding and pressure to do the ‘right thing’ according to others. This is about you being the right person to parent your child – no one else. It’s about trusting your genius as a parent and looking deeply beyond society’s expectations and outer pressures.

Cathy discusses being in tune with our strengths and those of our children, she encourages us to question our perceptions and know that our child is not, and was never meant to be, an extensions of us! She discusses true listening, encourages uncomfortable conversations, illustrates how we must model the behaviour and attitudes we’d like to foster in our children – the ability to be vulnerable, make mistakes, champion ourselves, and to allow our children the whole human experience, including struggle. (Yep, that’s a tough one.) She shows us how to instil self-belief in our children and empower them through responsibility, and how to ‘channel’ rather than change.

How does she know all of this? Through her own experience bringing up her five children with differing needs, through bringing out the potential in children she taught, through working with parents and families to bring out the best in all, and in her study in areas such as psychology and education.

An illuminating and practical conversation not only for parents, but for us all!
