What are Parenting Programmes?
Each programme is a series of meetings for parents or carers of children of all ages, which aim to help them
- Enjoy parenthood
- Understand respectful communication
- Create a framework of encouragement and discipline
- Reduce tension (e.g. squabbling, tantrums)
See the range of programmes on offer for further details.
The programme has taught me that I’m not alone in my parenting struggles It has made me look at how my behaviour impacts my child’s behaviour and helped me focus on staying calm to cope with each situation as it arises
How and where are they run?
The meetings are held each week for five to eight weeks during the school day or evenings, usually on school premises. They last about an hour and a half, and there are six to twelve people taking part.
What do participants do?
Everyone has a handbook to follow. Each session may involve a short video, discussion and a sharing of experience. The programme materials are produced by the Family Caring Trust, Hartley Brewer Parenting and Positive Parenting. There is no charge, although a voluntary donation will be gratefully received.
