Solihull Parenting Course

Several times a year school runs a course for parents who want to understand their child's behaviour better. The course looks at why children behave the way they do, and how to get the best behaviour out of your child. It focussed on helping your child manage their behaviour through containment and reciprocity, which is another way of saying "tuning in to your child". The course looks at sleep, anger, child development, emotions, play, and mostly why children behave the way they do. It's a free, fun, friendly 10 week course that is valued by employers in the health and education sector and suitable for any parent or cater with primary school aged children 3-11. 

 

Over the last few courses 100% of parents said they would definitely  recommend this course to their friends in the end of course evaluation. Quite an endorsement!

 

"This course helped me understand my child better and our relationship has improved a lot"

 

"I really enjoyed this course and have made a lot of new friends"

 

"Berry and Lisa ran the course brilliantly and it was enjoyably and funny every week. Lots of things are clearer now and my life at home with the kids is easier"
