If you volunteer for a parenting class, by definition you’re not a “bad” parent, merely one who knows they could do better. Parent Gym rewards attendees every week with a raffle ticket, but the truly neglectful simply won’t show up and, if forced to attend, will take nothing in.
We have been running Parent Gym at Kensington for a number of years now. The programme has transformed the lives of countless families. The approach is clear and well-structured. Training for my staff has been excellent. We have found it to have greater impact than ... other programmes aimed at supporting parents. If you are looking to target hard-to-reach parents and want to make a difference for them and their children, this approach is definitely worth investigating further.

Parenting challenges overcome by free programme
"The group enhanced my skills as a parent and I would definitely recommend it to others."
The Parent Gym programme is delivered in a very warm, supportive and non-judgmental way and provides practical tips and techniques to help family life run more smoothly and help children perform better at school.
Participants reflect on their parenting challenges and successes and much of its benefit lies in the support and advice that parents provide one another. Parent Gym explores how parents' own experience of being parented often affects their own parenting style as well as factors that motivate children to behave in particular ways.
