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!

Fortunately for us, she also shares some simple tools to help us step into the present moment, ‘switch on’ awe and learn how be guided by our own innate wisdom.

Disability & Sport: Fuelling the Fire

Sam McIntosh, in his very own unassuming, modest, quiet, sensitive way, is one of the most inspiring people I’ve ever met. When the three-time paralympian from Ocean Grove had the accident which resulted in his disability, his words to his desperately worried mother on the accident scene were: “I’m going to be the first person in a wheelchair to base jump into the Grand Canyon.” He already had a mental list of the things he was going to do as a person in a wheelchair. Yes - he has an uncanny ability, natural and unforced, to see silver linings and turn adversity into a “fire in his belly”.
