The ‘Helping Families Team’ have put together 3 really useful and informative packs to help you to look after yourself and your family.

PARENTING GROUNDWORK

BOUNDARIES AND DISCIPLINE

COVID-19 restrictions mean it is a particularly tricky time for parents to hold boundaries and manage disruptive behaviour. You may find yourself getting stuck in a cycle of withdrawing from difficult behaviour, or escalating punishments, which can damage self-esteem. Increasing your options for discipline and holding boundaries can help you feel more confident as a parent and increase your child’s wellbeing and settled behaviour. Download your pack here
