This page shares the classes and events run by Chelsea Lee Smith, the founder of MomentsADay.com. Most are held in Townsville (Queensland, Australia) but are occasionally in the Brisbane, Sydney, or Melbourne areas.
Author Visit to Schools and Libraries
Visits to schools and libraries generally last about 45 minutes and include a reading of one of my storybooks (such as Mason’s Greatest Gems or Garden of Virtues), time for questions, and a couple hands-on activities. Visits can be arranged for one class, a few classes, or a full assembly. Copies of the books can be included in a visit package and angles can be adjusted to suit your needs. There are digital activity packs available for each book that teachers can use to follow up the visit, as well.
I am a certified Positive Discipline parent educator and offer 6-week or 2-day weekend classes which you can read about in this post. I use the “Positive Discipline” theory and program developed by Dr. Jane Nelsen, based on the work of psychologists Alfred Adler and Rudolf Dreikurs. It is designed to help parents teach young people to become responsible members of their communities and develop important social and life skills in a manner based on mutual respect, connection, and resilience. Contact me to book your spot in the next class.
Presentations and Workshops
Topics of workshops can be those covered by my ebooks or digital workshops, Positive Discipline parenting materials, or emotion coaching for adults and/or children. I’m certified to teach “Tuning in to Kids: Emotionally Intelligent Parenting” which is an evidence-based program that focuses on the emotional intelligence and connection between parents and children. Emotion coaching is the ability to recognise, understand and respond to children’s emotions in an accepting, supportive way. This approach helps the child to understand and manage their emotions.
School Holiday Programs
The school holiday programs I offer often use my skills as a Rainbow Kids Yoga teacher to engage children. They might use some of my own materials or might be based on the “Full-Circle Learning” program. FCL is an educational model that unites the head, hands and heart; fosters altruistic identities; and strengthens aptitudes as it brings learning experiences full-circle. Its mission is to help young people embrace their role as society’s change agents and humanitarians. It does so through an integrated educational model that infuses purpose into learning.
