Helping Children Thrive

Helping Children Thrive Back at School - Part 1: Understanding Motivation

Thursday 11th March at 8pm

Would you like to know how to motivate your child as they transition back to school, and help them feel confident about re-engaging with work in the classroom?

Whether our experience of home-schooling has been positive or a struggle, every child will benefit from the right kind of support from their parents at home as they transition back to school life. As we stand back from overseeing their on-line learning, our focus needs to turn to helping our children develop the qualities they need to thrive over the next few years!

Join us to discover how to nurture your children’s self-esteem, encourage persistence and develop a healthy attitude to learning. We can increase their confidence so they feel able to stretch themselves and respond positively to set-backs and disappointments.

Helping Children Thrive Back at School – Part 2: Developing Emotional Intelligence

Thursday 18th March at 8pm

We know our children will face challenges as they return to the classroom, playgrounds and cloakrooms over the next few weeks. When we help them develop Emotional Intelligence, we boost their ability to self-regulate, increase their resilience and ability to cope with set-backs, frustrations, and disappointments.

Many studies show that children with good EI perform better academically, are physically healthier, and benefit from healthy friendships with others. And EI is a skill that parents can teach their children by understanding how to respond to their feelings and helping them to handle and express these feelings appropriately.

Join us to discover how to encourage self-awareness, self-regulation and communication skills at home that will reduce stress at school, leading to increased cognitive skills and happier relationships.

Helping Children Thrive

Helping Children Thrive Back at School – Part 3: Encouraging Independence

Thursday 25th March at 8pm

Would you like to help your child become more organised and independent and think ahead about what they need to do at school?

We can help our children feel more successful at school, and at home, when we help them prepare in advance for upcoming challenges. We can help them develop positive habits that will last a life-time including taking responsibility for their schoolwork, managing their time appropriately, looking after their possessions, and handling friendship issues. There are very effective ways to do this that don’t involve stepping in and taking over!

Join us to learn highly effective and practical training tools that will encourage your child’s autonomy and independence, so they will be more confident about their abilities which impacts their self-esteem and resilience.

Friday Refreshers


Fridays at 1pm

We know that parents make significant changes and experience many benefits after doing a positive parenting course.

We also recognise that it can be hard to sustain positive habits and, as our children grow, there are always new challenges popping up!

If you have done our Family Skills Course or any course with us at The Parent Practice, come along to hear specific solutions and feel re-energised and motivated to use your positive parenting skills.

Each week we focus on a different age group – 0-5 years, 6-10 years, and 11+ years old. You will be invited to submit specific questions when you book.



Workshops coming soon


Calmer Parent


Have you ever reacted to your child’s behaviour in a way that you regret? Would you like to understand why this happens and what you can do about it?

When our kids are rude, demanding, or un-cooperative, when they provoke their siblings or ignore or flout the family rules, many parents are pushed to shouting, blaming and threatening. Losing our cool in these difficult moments is a lose/lose situation but it is a cycle that can be broken.

Join us to learn how our brains are wired and why certain behaviours push us to react, and learn to stay calmer in the face of challenging moments, and handle them more effectively.

Anxiety Workshop


We are increasingly aware of and concerned by the rising levels of anxiety in our children.

There are many different causes of anxiety, and many ways that children display their fears and worries. When we understand how anxiety works, the role it plays, and can distinguish between natural (even helpful) and self-limiting levels of worry, we can help our children manage their fears and concerns in a positive way. It’s a key life-skill and it’s never too late or too early to start.

Join us to learn more about the role of anxiety, and how to recognise and manage your child’s fears and worries, both in the short-term and over the longer-term.

Girls Self Esteem


Do you worry about your daughter’s self-esteem? Is she showing signs of perfectionism, where nothing she does is good enough?

A strong self-esteem is vital to help our daughters do their best and cope with the inevitable pressures and challenges of life. We want our daughters to be confident about their abilities so they try new things, have a positive body image and develop healthy friendships. We want them to realise that making mistakes is normal and that ‘good enough’ leads to a healthy mindset.

Join us to learn how girls can be different in the way they think and behave, and discover practical and effective strategies to help your daughter have confidence in herself.

Boys Behaviour


Boys have many positive qualities, which can also be challenging for their parents, and often for the boys themselves.

It can be hard for boys to manage their energy appropriately, and many of them struggle with co-operation as well as organisation and focus. They can become excessively competitive and find it hard to win and lose appropriately. They are often tempted to push boundaries and challenge authority, and have difficulties accepting responsibility for their behaviour.

Join us to learn key skills to channel energy and deal with excessive competitiveness, and help your sons develop better habits of co-operation and work within boundaries.



Are you tired of trying to manage the bickering, arguing, and fighting between your children? Are you frustrated as you listen to their complaints and tales and worried by their provocations, taunts and hurtful behaviour towards each other?

Getting along with a sibling is a surprisingly complex matter, and some of the ways parents try to achieve sibling harmony doesn’t work in the way we hope.

Join us to find out why brothers and sisters struggle to get along, and the role parents play in their interaction. You will learn several practical ways to help your children develop tolerance and consideration for each other, and learn how to resolve their differences effectively.

Attending the workshop was a great way to spend an evening together at home! It was a really good investment of our time to try to understand our son better and be the best parents we can.

The Girls & Friendship workshop was excellent. Recently my 12 year old daughter was in a friendship triangle fallout and I felt so capable to help her this time, whereas I have felt helpless before.

- Emma, mum of two

I underestimated how life-changing some of the advice from the Boys Workshop was. Descriptive Praise has done wonders for my son. He is happier, more relaxed, and better behaved as a result. And so are the rest of us!
