Many parents are currently having to juggle multiple full time jobs: parenting, schooling, working from home… In fact, 1.4 billion children are now at home, and in the UK alone, there are 4.6 million households with dependent children aged under 16 years where all parents in the household are working.
Parent Gym is here to help. We’ve developed a suite of digital, bite-sized free modules, called “eWorkouts” to parents not just cope, but conquer… even in the toughest of moments.
Read below to find out more.
An eWorkout is a bite-size, interactive tool, designed to share tips and tricks on a particular topic. They are practical and evidence-based and arranged into a mix of text, questions, quizzes, card sorting and videos. Many have downloadable pages to easily use again and each eWorkout ends with a "Mission" - something to put into practice
They should only take about 10 mins each, perfect timing for a tea break...
We've arranged the eWorkouts in two different ways, to make sure parents are able to access the support most relevant to them.
1) Some of the most relevant content from the Parent Gym 6 week workshops to help support with the challenges parents are facing right now, now accessible in a digital format to help all parents, whether you are working or not.
2) Brand new content that specifically addresses working parents and the current juggle created by COVID-19.
Check out the options below to see which ones you want to try, and get started on your first eWorkout.
