Balancing work with being a good parent can be incredibly stressful for working parents.
We work with employers offering working parents access to the Parenting Matters course and community with additional wraparound support for groups of parents, facilitated locally. This can be provided as part of an employee wellbeing programme.
Parenting Matters helps parents gain the knowledge and skills to support their child’s learning, creating a positive home learning environment.
We work with nurseries and primary schools, offering their parents access to the Parenting Matters course and community, along with optional additional wraparound support for groups of parents, facilitated locally.
Parenting coaches and mental health professionals
Our programme is also designed to be used as a tool by parenting coaches and other professionals.
It provides a structure for parents to learn new skills online, along with the extra encouragement and support from you to keep parents engaged. And by using the course alongside, you are more able to focus on parents' key issues.
Issues with a child’s behaviour, anxiety, problems sleeping or with relationships all have a significant effect on a family’s health and wellbeing.
There is a very large body of research showing that evidence-based parenting programmes improve outcomes for families.
We can provide parents you support with access to our online parenting programme and exclusive parenting community. Parents learn skills that they are able to put into action immediately to create positive and lasting changes for the whole family.
Charities & family hubs
We help families thrive by providing information and tools to parents to help them raise happy children with whom they have a positive relationship, while also looking after their own wellbeing.
Creating a positive home learning environment for their child in the early years can transform family life.
We can provide parents you support with access to our universal parenting programme and our welcoming parenting community. We’ll also give your team access to the course and community too, so that they are familiar with the evidence-based content, tools and strategies. This means your team can provide motivational and practical support, while knowing that all the content families need is in the programme.
Some words from our Community.
“I have run a Parenting Matters group online in our school. There were many moving moments where the course would create opportunities for parents to hear and support each other with kindness and compassion, feel normal and less ‘rubbish parent’. While at the same time supporting each other to put into practice the strategies from the programme.”
“The Parenting Matters programme has made life and home so much easier and has enabled me to find a much better work / life balance. Before I took the programme I was distracted at work and wondering about giving it up. Now I can really concentrate on work when I’m there and feel much more enthusiastic about my job while at the same time enjoying my children”
“It enabled me to reflect on what I do as a parent and feel more in control at home”
“I just wanted to say how helpful and great this course is. I wish I had had it earlier. Every parent should have this information. It's like a lightbulb has gone off in my head.”
