  Raising Children with Confidence

This is a seven session course which aims to give all parents and carers the chance to explore emotional health and wellbeing and consider how they can best promote it in themselves and their children.

Drawing on the latest research it helps explain why parents’ actions make a difference to their children’s emotional wellbeing and future positive mental health.

This programme is suitable for parents and carers of children aged 0-11yrs.

Courses are held each term throughout the city in primary schools and community venues.

Raising Children with Confidence is part of the Growing Confidence project.

Topics covered

  • Emotional health and well-being - what is it and why is it important?
  • Looking inside children's brains - understanding why they do what they do?
  • Helping children to cope with the ups and downs of life
  • Listening differently to understand better
  • Making links between our thoughts, feelings and behaviour
  • Helping children to flourish in today's busy world

Courses run during term time.
