Parent Gym

Parent Gym is a series of six workshops that are proven to increase skills and confidence for parents and carers to improve the behaviour and wellbeing of their children.

Annmarie Tampling, our Family Support Worker, has completed full training and we are delighted to have her as our very own Parent Gym Coach. The course is designed to support all parents and carers and ensure their children get the best start in life. Sutton Trust in 2010 said that 16% of pupils who are eligible for free school meals progress to university. Great parenting will play a huge part in changing this and that's where Parent Gym can help.

Each weeks Parent Gym session is set to a specific topic and is discussed within the group of 20 parents and carers. The highly participative sessions explore a vast range of questions such as "How can I get my child to open up?" "How can I resolve a family disagreement in a positive way?" or "How can I build my child's resilience?" 

Some of our Parent Gym Graduate Parents and Carers have written their success stories and have shared their thoughts, a year on, about their attendance at our Parent Gym Course.

 What is Aha! Parenting? You know what an Aha! Moment is, right? With our child, it’s that lightning flash of insight, when  suddenly we see things from another perspective, and everything has the potential to be different. This website has Aha!  moments for parents of every age child, from pregnancy right through the teen years.

 Dr. Laura Markham, the founder of Aha! Parenting, trained as a Clinical Psychologist at Columbia University -- but she’s  also a mum, so she understands children and how tough it is to be a parent.
