The Parenting Courses

Parenting Courses

Courses that offer you the knowledge, understanding and support to parent with confidence and consistency

While no two children are the same, the fundamental processes of growth and development that guide them are.

Firstly, in What every parent should know we will look at the importance of play, communication, physical activity, healthy eating and sleep.  In doing so we will consider common areas of concern and simple steps you can put in place.  Next, in The Happy Child we will look at understanding and managing your child’s anxieties, their self-esteem and confidence. 

We will then look at how this impacts their friendships and relationships.  Thirdly, in The Secure Child we will consider your child’s emotions, the effect these have on their behaviours.  And we will consider the best – and worst – ways of supporting your child with them.  And lastly, in The Learning Child we will look at teaching and learning as we consider the deep-rooted dispositions your child needs to excel. 

As your child moves through the early days of infancy, they will establish a sense of themselves ready to explore the physical freedoms of becoming a toddler.  A little older, and the social freedoms of peer groups and friendships add to the mix.  Parenting at any age involves its own challenges and rewards as development occurs on a continuum.  These courses give you the knowledge, understanding and support you need, whether your child is 16 days or 16 years old.

Knowledge of how your child is developing and the processes their bodies and minds are going through. 


Understanding how your actions, comments and decisions affect your child’s responses now and in the future.


Supported with advice you can trust, you can parent with confidence and consistency.

Underpinned by research and current thinking in the fields of child development, psychology, health and well-being, we will explore the nature of your developing child and use this to inform the discussions, recommendations and advice that is offered. As your understanding of your growing child develops, so too will your awareness and patience of their actions and behaviours, allowing you to manage them more effectively and support them more genuinely.

This course has been really valuable. Thank you for being so informative.”

It opened my eyes to understanding more about children’s brains and knowing what we do has a big impact right from the beginning.
