3 Day Raising Children Training
I suppose what I am trying to say is how this course has given me the opportunity to understand my own grandchildren’s behaviour and help me support my daughter better, by not undermining her assertive parenting and show consistency. At the same time it will help me understand the many clients who come to me for help, picking up on the feelings behind their problems more easily. I also appreciate the suggestions I may be able to pass on to clients experiencing parenting challenges. I found the course stimulating, thought provoking and the people on the course were a great bunch sharing their experiences generously and kindly, it was a very rewarding experience.

One to One service
My husband and I worked with Suzanne to try and make the changes needed to improve our relationship with our daughter. Suzanne listened carefully and enabled us to think about how our responses needed to change to enable home life to change. She opened conversations and made us think carefully about how the way we were parented affected the way we parent. She helped us to understand our daughters feelings and how to respond to those. Suzanne is kind, patient and understanding, she never cast judgement and was easy to talk to. I would recommend Suzanne to any family in need of additional support.
The Understanding and Dealing with Challenging Behaviour course was the BEST course I have ever attended. All of the information has been retained and I use this on a weekly basis and it does make a difference. Hannah Threlfall, Kettlefields Primary School. Our aim to make our school community more resilient has been fantastically supported by the work of Sharing Parenting. A tailor made training course for staff has given them the tools to help others and themselves become more resilient. Theory is mixed with practical guidance that teachers can apply to the classroom. Highly recommend! S.Erickson, Chesterton Academy, UK, 2015 Sharing Parenting have provided a range of staff with highly effective strategies to support our children’s behaviour, with a solid understanding of the related theories. Our staff received the training very positively and have been able to implement the practical strategies immediately, to good effect. Nick Erin, St Louis School 2015
