Building Great Families Course
Topics Covered
Parenting Styles
A self-reflection on how I parent now and how I want to parent in the future
Managing Behaviour
We will discover skills and strategies from Skip and the Triple P Programme to encourage positive behaviour from our children
Encouraging Good Behaviour
We all want to build a family environment to be positive, fun and encouraging places to be and we will build on what you are already doing and give you ideas on increasing this aspect
Child Development
How can I support my child through the significant changes in his or her life? Is what is happening really bad or a normal part of my child’s development? We will look at ages and stages and how we need to shift our parenting at different developmental stages
Communication
Let’s listen so we can talk – there are many small and big things we can do to increase our ability to hear what our children are trying to say to us and how we can show them how important they are to us
Family Wellbeing
Putting it all together
The sessions are relaxed with a focus on positive parenting which centres on the Triple P Programme and the resources from Skip.
Who Can Take Part?
This Programme is most suitable for all parents of children aged between 0 years and 16 years of age.
