For parents of children aged under twelve who are seeking help to cope with and manage their child’s behaviour Parent to Parent can offer a one or two half-day FAB (Families Altering Behaviour) course. The support workers bring together a small group of parents, usually no more than five or six, and help them to focus on their child’s challenging behaviour. They consider their parenting style, how to calm situations, the need for suitable rewards as well as discipline and the benefits of consistency.
Many parents who have completed the course have found it beneficial and comments made at the end of the course include:
“Definitely have more insight into why his behaviour is this way”
“It was nice to meet other parents and have a chance to talk to other people experiencing the same difficulties. Also helped me to look at things from a different angle”.”
“Great class with great people”
“Very good course. Helpful advice. It was really good to speak to parents just like us with the same issues we have”.
“I have a better understanding as to why certain behaviours happen and that there is always a reason”.
