Programme aims: My 1:1 Parenting Mentoring is a valuable service for parents who need help with an issue and can gain support. The sessions are one hour in duration and time to reflect and discuss, parents have a greater understanding of the child's behaviour and the reasons behind it. They leave with a clear understanding of how to respond in a way that works better and I get a lot of emails or texts of the improvement they experience.
Resources used: I have a full Parenting and Relationships programme that I draw on when dealing with parents and with time to reflect, time for discussion, parents leave with a few action points and more importantly a fresh understanding of the behaviour and a better way to respond.
