Useful Resources including courses

We’re just starting to fill up this page with helpful information and links to online services. Please let us know if you’d like us to add anything.

 
We have had several requests from families for us to run more workshops to support families at home. We have secured the following sessions for you:
 
 
Friday 3 February 9.00 - 11.15
Dealing with Disobedience (For parents with children aged 2-10 years) 
This discussion topic provides examples of common forms of disobedience and some reasons why children may have difficulty learning to follow instructions. A number of positive parenting strategies are then introduced to help parents develop a personal plan to prevent disobedience, to teach their child limits and to also manage disobedience when necessary
 
Friday 24 March 9-11.15
Hassle-free Shopping with Children (For parents with children aged 1-10 years) 
This discussion topic uses shopping trips as an example of one of the most common times parents have to deal with difficult behaviour in public. Positive parenting strategies are discussed through step-by-step suggestions for preventing problems and teaching children how to behave on shopping trips. Parents develop individualised plans to manage problem behaviour during their own shopping trips and are encouraged to transfer new parenting strategies to other potentially difficult community situations.​
 
There will be a free creche for pre-school children and all places must be booked in advance through the school office. Many thanks
