Parent advice session- improving your child's behaviour at home

Dear Parents/ Carers,


I hope that you have had a lovely half term holiday and Jubilee bank holiday weekend. We are looking forward to welcoming your children back to school on Monday 6th June.


Would you like some common sense advice to help you improve your child's behaviour at home?

Would you like some tips to help your child (and you) to regulate emotions better, leading to a more peaceful home?


Parenting is a massive challenge. Some children have a hard time listening to parents, and find it impossible to accept it when they say no. This can leave parents feeling frustrated and sometimes helpless. It might seem easier to give in to your child than to have a battle. You might live with extended family who have different ideas on disciplining children to yours. And how do we keep our children growing into good people, when they see so many examples of bad behaviour on their TV and computer screens?


We have arranged for Emma Shackleton, from Beacon Behaviour consultants, to come and run an advice session for all parents on Monday 6th June at 2.30pm. This will be in the hall.


Before Covid put a stop to us having parents in school, Emma ran a similar workshop and parents found it really useful. Emma advises schools, including specialist behaviour units, as well as parents. She has over 20 years in education and is also a parent herself, so she understands the challenges that parents face. This will be an informal session, and you will be able to ask questions.


If you have time to come, I would strongly advise you to. It will be great to have you in school and, having seen Emma previously, I know it will be useful.


Best wishes,

Mrs Seymour
