What do other parents say about these guides?
“This course has been an absolutely invaluable gift to me. It has and will change so many aspects of my life. I am undoubtedly a better parent and more rounded and fulfilled person as a result. Some aspects have literally been like ‘Eureka’ moments to me! I WISH I’d known all this years ago”
“The Solihull Approach course I did made it clear parents don’t need lessons: daily life throws us enough of those. What we need is the space to step back and observe our children. We need some structured guidance to help us reflect on all the factors that make them behave the way they do; some developmental, some circumstantial.”
“I have found the online course very useful. Now, I take time to think more during difficult situations and during arguments with my kids.”
“It doesn't work all the time but bit by bit, we are working towards a less confrontational household!”
“It’s an absolutely brilliant course. And is a fantastic way to educate us all to pause and stop and try to see what’s behind the behaviour rather than responding to the behaviour. Applies to work colleagues/ friends/ acquaintances as well as kids! Win win win.”
The guides are provided by the Solihull Approach and made available locally by Frimley Local Maternity and Neonatal System which is part of the Frimley Health and Care Integrated Care System (ICS), a partnership of NHS, health services, local authorities, voluntary sector and local people working to improve health and care services.
