Follow up meeting of Group 3 and Group 4 on 16th Dec

We had a follow up session for the participants of Group 3 and Group 4 .  We took up situations which we face everyday with our children and did role plays on that. We tried to understand how we could connect with our children and in a funny way realised that we were more into trying to get them to do what we wanted.

Over chai, chips and biscuits, had a discussion on how certain things work and some just don’t. We will be meeting next month in January 2012.
