The Solihull Approach Parenting Group is intended for parents and carers who want to know more about sensitive and effective parenting. It aims to develop a framework of thinking about reciprocal parent/child relationships which can be developed into life long skills. The approach promotes effective behaviour management and explores issues such as…

  • Tuning into children
  • Exploring feelings
  • Parenting styles
  • Communication ( What is being communicated through behaviour)
  • Temper Tantrums and what might be meant by them
  • Sleep patterns
  • Behavioural Difficulties
