Parenting Puzzle

This programme is based around four constructs. The foundation stones for the programme are: Self awareness and self esteem, appropriate expectations, empathy and positive discipline. These make a satisfying acronym: SEEDS. The four constructs are the SEEDS for emotional health and provide the key elements for successful relationships and confident parenting.

"I enjoy all of it, feeling more at ease with other members….. I love coming to this, it’s time for me to open up, feel relaxed, listened to and not judged." - parent

The 10 week programme builds on the skills parents already have and introduces lots of ways to improve family relationships and manage the behaviour of children of all ages, helping to improve parents' confidence. It gives ways to maintain effective positive discipline while gaining more understanding of their own and their child's emotional needs. Amongst many different skills, parents attending the course learn to:

  • recognise the value of consistency and set clear boundaries
  • maintain positive discipline
  • respect their own and their children's emotional needs
  • become a more confident, understanding parent.
