Emma “Our day-to-day life is so much better because I’m stress-free. I learned how to get my daughter to eat properly, which was a nightmare before.”

Julie was just out buying nappies when it all became too much. “I couldn’t cope that day with the kids screaming and crying, and I didn’t know where to turn. I grabbed the kids and left my shopping behind. “I decided to have a go at a parenting course and I’m so glad I did because I met other parents going through the same things. “I overcame so many frustrations, like not knowing what they wanted when they were crying, and how to say no and mean it without getting stressed.”

Vicky “I really didn’t know how to deal with my son until I did the parenting course. Now we talk rather than screaming and shouting at each other. The parenting course changed my life.”

“The house is a lot calmer now. There’s no shouting and far less arguments, because we talk it through.” “As a father it’s definitely worth doing. It’s made such an improvement.”
