Positive Parenting

Ref: C3673472

This course is for parents or carers who want to improve their home life with their children. We will be looking at behaviour, learning, sleep, eating, self esteem and any other aspects of family life that the participants would like to address. The course will be friendly and will welcome input from every learner and learner's experiences will be celebrated. This will be achieved by identifying why certain behaviours happen, how to change them if necessary, exploring how the home environment can lead to behaviour changes and improved learning attitudes.
