‘The Walsall Way of Parenting’

 

Parents really are the most influential factor in a child and young person’s life and all children test the limits and get angry.  It’s not always easy for parents; kids don’t come with an instruction manual!

Parenting programmes are proven to be effective at helping all parents to increase positive relationships, promote children’s development and manage behaviour in constructive caring ways.

The Suite of Parenting Programmes

What makes ‘The Walsall Way of Parenting’ unique is that we recognise that one size does not fit all – different programmes will meet different parent’s needs. Because we recognise this fact,  we have adopted  several different evidence based programmes. 

We have a suite of programmes to meet these individual needs – universal and specialist.
