Council offers free parenting programmes

Article By: Slough Borough Council

Slough Borough Council is providing a series of free parenting programmes to help parents manage their child’s behaviour more effectively and develop a more positive relationship with them.

The Triple P course is an eight week programme, delivered by education professionals and designed to bring a group of parents together on a weekly basis for a two hour session to share their own experiences and discuss current issues.

The programme covers a variety of topics, including:

•setting appropriate rules for children to follow •managing difficult behaviour •building positive relationships

There will be two programmes starting in October at Yew Tree Children’s Centre and Orchard Road Children’s Centre. One programme is specifically designed for parents of children in primary school and the other is for parents of children in secondary school.

Councillor Natasa Pantelic, commissioner for education and children’s services said: “Parents who attend can expect to develop some very positive ways of managing their child's behaviour and share their experiences with others. Parents often find that after completing these parenting programmes, their home life and relationships with their children greatly improve.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity for parents to learn from other experienced parents and professionals about positive parenting.”

Parents interested in joining the free programmes, or wanting further information should contact Amina Ali on 01753 787640 or email
