Mind Gym tycoon wants to roll out free parenting lessons across country
Black founded the Parent Gym programme, which runs in 22 schools in the most deprived areas of London, using profits from the sale of his Mind Gym "brain workout" sessions to corporate clients. His training method has been backed by the London mayor, Boris Johnson, and involves nine two-hour sessions for parents. Themes include communication, managing relationships, play and learning, parenting styles, rules and routines, and creating a supporting and nurturing home environment.
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.
No more backchat sweetie, I'm a black belt in motherhood now
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.
