Programmes about Parenting

The 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

Access and Availability :
Parenting programmes are provided by a range of organisations, including health visitors, schools and voluntary organisations. There is at present no single information point to find out about courses. Possible sources of information about courses in your locality are: health visitors, schools, school nurses, social workers, family centres and "ASK" (08457 585072).
