They are confused by new emotions and new experiences they face with young people .The programme helps them to step back ,and think about what transition means for their teenager ,it may help to understand some of the puzzling behaviour and experiences they have been through . There is very rapid brain development during adolescence, and the major change that occurs will affect behaviour and once they realise the changes, we will begin to see changes in their relationship.

Partnership with parents

We receive many referrals from a wide range of services and organizations. We deal with complex cases and work in partnership with services to draw up plans to work in the best interest of the family and child. Families come from all walks of life, and struggle with parenting due to many reasons, experiences, trauma ,mental health and events from early childhood .Our service provides a non-judgmental approach to every parent /career, young person and  child/ren  we work with Sometimes parents may not be ready to become a parent, unable to cope with the  stress, parents may have also experienced mental health difficulties as a result ,they may turn to drugs or alcohol  which in turn can have a very negative effect on children.

Almost all  parents are afraid of seeking help for their problems because of fear of what will happen to their children., but the risk to a child  from untreated parental mental health issues ,drug or alcohol misuses or violence is to great to be afraid of getting help.

Professionals on our team continue to be trained to support parents to make changes and together parents and professionals work to ensure children grow up in a healthy and safe environment through the many services and support we offer .

Sometimes, the relationships between all family members can become stressful for various reasons and everyone may struggle and find it hard to get along.

Parenting programmes offer so much to the whole school community and we see the great need in our school so hope to continue this valuable work”
