Programmes about ParentingThe purpose of a parenting programme is to change the way in which parents behave towards their children in order to improve the effectiveness with which they respond to their child’s physical, emotional, educational (intellectual/cognitive), social and cultural needs. They follow a structured programme or curriculum, usually in a group but sometimes on a one-to-one basis. Elements of the programme are likely to include:
• developing understanding of the child’s behaviour and emotional needs
• learning new ways of responding to the child and managing their behaviour
