Parenting Support in London
What is Parenting Support?
Parenting Support is designed to alleviate the emotional challenges that accompany the role of parenting. The primary goal of Parenting Support is to provide advice and information in ways that help parents become more capable and competent. Parenting Support can be utilised with new parents, single parents, step-families, and families who are adopting or fostering.
Parenting Support interventions aim to: increase knowledge and understanding of children’s development and needs; build positive relationships and improve behaviour and communication; make parenting and family life more enjoyable; increase confidence and parenting skills; help parents to feel more positive and reduce parenting stress; develop new skills for parents.
Parenting Support provides parents and carers with an opportunity to learn new skills that will help manage thoughts and emotions within themselves and improve their relationships with family members. Length of this intervention will be contingent on issues addressed and specific therapies used.
