The programme allows parents the fantastic chance to make connections and establish a bonding network, something which I feel no other programme would allow.
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.
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.

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.
