As parents it’s quickly learnt that a big part of parenting is matching discipline, praise and other parenting strategies to your child’s individual needs.

Whether you’ve got a 4 year old that shouts & screams "I’m in charge mum“ or a 12-year-old ”I’m not a baby I can do it all myself.“
Listening is the most important skill to effective parenting the ability to listen to others is key.
There are many reasons why children and young people can present different types of challenging behaviours. It is vital that we have strategies for responding to and managing these behaviours.
Explore past experiences, which may have influenced challenging behaviour then focus on the positive experiences which can provide children and young people with new opportunities; enabling them to build resilience and manage their reactions to challenging situations.
