My children are 6 and 8 so I have also had some problems with sibling rivalry, but Parent Gym has helped me to make a discipline system, so that they always know what will happen when they fight. I now also make sure that I spend a specific amount of alone time with each child, so that they both feel important and it has really helped to stop with their fighting and make the house a much calmer place.
Parenting, the flip chart way
Parent Gym is a... philanthropic offshoot of [the] company Mind Gym. While Mind Gym sets out to improve people’s performance at work, Parent Gym tries to do the same at home. It has been running classes across London since 2009.
Kensington Primary has moved from RI to outstanding in less than three years but is now setting its sights even higher
The school works with some of its most vulnerable families to help them develop their parenting skills via the national Parent Gym initiative. This is a series of six two-hour workshops delivered by a trained member of staff. The sessions cover things like how to communicate, balancing warmth and discipline and how to encourage learning.
“The feedback we get is that it can be transformative. Some parents, and their children as a result, have had their lives turned round.”
