Understanding Your Child/Teen - Free Online course


Have you ever wanted to know more about parenting and how children develop, to help you to understand your child’s behaviour better? Well now you can. 

We have created an online, enjoyable and interesting course for parents, which looks at:-

  • Having Fun Together
  • Behaviour Difficulties
  • Sleep
  • Communication
  • Development Needs
  • Parenting Styles

The online course consists of 11 sessions of about 20 minutes each, with interactive activities, quizzes, video clips, ideas to try out, downloadable information sheets and a Notebook to record ideas.

It covers brain development, containment and reciprocity, as well as understanding why children behave a certain way when they are angry, have a temper tantrum or have trouble sleeping.
