Warm Parenting Helps 'Callous or Unemotional' Children
By Yvette Vignando - 26th July 2012
In this video from Mornings at Channel 9, Yvette Vignando on the parenting panel with Dannielle Miller and Tracey Spicer talking about:
- research lead by Dr David Hawes from the University of Sydney about the kind of warm and positive parenting that can help children with what is known as "callous and unemotional" (CU) traits. The research was conducted with Karitane, and indicated that parents can have a positive impact on their child's social and emotional functioning by using a warm and nurturing parenting style. We'll be publishing a short article about this research in the coming week - please keep an eye on our Recent Articles area and home page. The Tuning Into Kids online parenting course will be advertised next week - it is all about using a warm emotion coaching style to raise children and may be especially helpful for parents who find their children's behaviour challenging.
- separated parents who are in a dispute over their child and the father has been ordered to stop weighing his daughter as it affects her self esteem.
