Ways of respecting others but not letting yourself be walked on - especially for parents. Seven weekly sessions to help you to deal more effectively with those awkward situations when you could kick yourself for having said 'yes' to something you didn't want to, or for saying the wrong thing, or for handling something badly.

We now offer parent support programmes that have been produced by The Family Caring Trust. For over a decade, the Trust's resources have been the most popular parenting materials in Britain and Ireland - over half a million parents have experienced at least one of the courses. They have also been translated into Afrikaans, Arabic, Bengali, Czech, Danish, Icelandic, Japanese, Latvian, Punjabi, Russian, Somali, Spanish, Tamil, Urdu, Welsh and Xhosa! They are widely used by social services, and by well over a thousand schools and adult education bodies.
Nought to Sixes
Seven or eight weekly sessions offering effective parenting support to parents of babies, toddlers, pre-schoolers and children in the first few years of primary school. Simply written, jargon-free, common sense approach. Produced in co-operation with Barnardos and incorporating the BBC's acclaimed QED programme on parenting.
Six to eight weekly sessions to reinforce the same parenting skills while dealing with the more difficult situations met in the teen years. Because it is so important to reinforce skills being learnt, it is recommended that parents of teenagers experience the Primary to Pre-teen programme first (though this is not essential).
