Can parenting be taught? David Cameron believes new classes in child-rearing are the way to improve family life. Lena Corner, mother of two boys and with another on the way, joins a session to find out what she can learn
The Parent Gym class I attended was great fun, but it also made me think a lot. As a parent, I know how hard it can be to know how best to support and nurture your child, and how lonely and isolating being a parent can be at times. That is why programmes like Parent Gym are so valuable, as not only do they impart evidence-based knowledge and techniques through the coaches, but they are also a great way of meeting, learning from, and sharing your own experience with other parents.
Volunteering for Parent Gym has honestly given me far more than I feel I have given in return- I’ve met a bunch of wonderful parents, made a whole new circle of friends with the other coaches, and have got to know a wonderful organisation.
