The programme allows parents the fantastic chance to make connections and establish a bonding network, something which I feel no other programme would allow.
Getting my kids to eat vegetables had always been a struggle, but I learnt to be more persistent with things than I had been before. Usually if my son didn't like something, I just wouldn't give it to him but I got the idea of consistently putting it on his plate every meal time and eventually it worked. He realised that vegetables are not all bad and is now happily eating carrots!
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.
We have now run nine Parent Gym programmes. The impact of the course can be seen with improved behaviour of the children in school. We hope to continue to work with Parent Gym for a very long time.
