Parent Gym has been a great success in our school. All of the parents who joined on the first week, completed the full programme, it was wonderful that there were no drop outs part way through. Vicky, the coach, was great - very organised and approachable. She clearly built up a good rapport with the parents. The parents who attended reported to have learned a lot, and made good friends along the way. They will be meeting monthly to keep in touch and talk about what they learned through Parent Gym. We would recommend the programme to other schools, it's a great way to bring parents together and support them in parenting their children.
I really enjoyed the sessions and these changed a lot of what I did before….. I shouted, I didn’t listen to my children and there was a lot wrong in our house. My son refused to do his homework. Now I am less stressed, my son does his homework on time, my daughter plays with her brother which never happened before. I am so proud of what we have achieved and so happy.
Do we need parenting classes?
Given that most parents sit through hours of antenatal lessons, it seems crazy that the classes stop at birth, and that there's nothing to help with the much bigger task of bringing the child up.
