Parent Gym - Week 6

This week saw the final week of Parent Gym and was a time for reflection and celebration between parents and children.

The topics discussed included ways to defuse sibling conflict, and to find ways to stop disagreements spiralling. They celebrated through discussion the importance of developing their children’s (and family) identity and found fun ways in which they could do this ‘together’ with their children and support networks.

Our parents and carers realised that there is always an opportunity to inject learning and discovering into family life e.g.. cooking, celebrates different heritages/countries. The more time families spend with their children on a one to one basis and involve them in simple choice/decision making, the more likely they are to cooperate and the less conflict we should have at home (and out and about).

Congratulations to all of our parents and carers for completing their course.
