Parenting Matters

Parenting is not a one size fits all. Every parent and child is different and unique. Successful parenting therefore cannot be reduced to a list of rules, it is about the relationship you have with your child.

By learning simple and practical techniques that are based on working with your own and your children’s feelings as well as communicating in positive and respectful ways you can ensure you have a good relationship with your child, bringing calmness to everyday parenting situations, such as misbehaviour, teenage rebellion and sibling fighting, as well as increasing cooperation and reducing conflict.

Every parent wants the best for their child. By having a positive relationship with them you can not only increase your child’s confidence but teach them the social and emotional skills necessary to succeed in school, relationships and life.
