Poltair have be delighted to facilitate a Take 3 parenting programme at the school over the past three months. Our parent support advisor worked alongside a targeted youth worker to deliver the course to a group of parents within the community. This week seen the final session in the 10 week programme, which looked at strategies to support adolescent development. The programme included sessions on understanding adolescents, effective communication, encouragement, parenting styles, negotiation, boundaries and consequences.

"I think every parent should go on this course, whether or not they are having problems, as long as you go with an open mind, are honest with yourself and are willing to put in the time and effort, you will find it useful". - Parent

The programme has been a real success and we look forward to facilitating another one later in the year. The parents who attended have found the course hugely beneficial and as result positive feedback was given by all.

"The facilitators were fantastic and I felt I could tell them anything, knowing it would be kept confidential if I wished". - Parent

If you are interested in attending any parenting courses please call the school and speak to our Parent Support Advisor - Rebecca Stoneman.
