Parents@TUOS Coffee Morning - Communication Without Conflict

Tea/coffee and cakes provided

"They never listen to me!"
"They know just how to push my buttons!"
"How should I discipline my kids effectively?"

We have 90 minutes to reflect on (and adjust) how we and our child(ren) listen to, understand, and talk to each other. Come prepared to share with others as this will be an interactive session.

Quarterly coffee mornings are for men and women (from all staff categories in both the Faculties and professional services and postgraduate researchers) at the University who have families, or are about to start a family, or are thinking about having children in the future.

This aims of the Parents@TUOS Network are:

  • To be a conduit for information
  • To support all staff and students through career breaks
  • To share best practice and ‘how to’ tips
