All our workshops, whether online, in-person or recorded, are led by one of The Parent Team’s experienced parent educators, and provide an in-depth explanation of each topic, with effective solutions and practical examples. Each workshop is accompanied by a detailed e-handout.
Attending live online workshops offers the chance to share your parenting challenges with others, which has been shown to alleviate as much stress and worry as practising mindfulness! Not only that, many of us find that we’re more alert and responsive when we’re interacting with others.
Each term we offer a selection of live online workshops giving you the opportunity to join in and ask your questions.
Here’s some workshops coming up in the Autumn Term!
As the festive season approaches, the pressure to create the perfect family Christmas starts to build. We want to enjoy this special time of year, away from the daily grind of work and school, and create happy memories for our children, as well as getting a bit of a break ourselves! And yet the logistics, commercialism, stimulating events and disruptions to routines, combined with the emotional intensity of family-centred holidays, often result in stress for both parents and kids.
Join us for this 60-minute online workshop to discover how you can make the most of this Christmas as a family. We will explore strategies for managing expectations, reinforcing values related to gift-giving and gratitude, preparing children for disruptions to routine and sensory overload, and for communicating effectively with family members to minimise potential turmoil and conflict.BOOK NOW

The 11+ process is an intensive process which has important implications for the choice of a child’s next school. The process can cause real stress for children and their parents.
Some parents become concerned that their child is becoming so worried about the exams and interviews that they won’t do themselves justice on the day, and other parents are frustrated about their child’s apparent lack of motivation or even any interest in the process.
Join us to find out how you can help your child approach and manage the 11+ process, from the preparation stages through to the exams and interview days, and to the high emotions when the school offers are made. We will look at how parents can help their child feel as comfortable, confident and motivated as possible as they approach this exam period, which lays the foundation for how they approach the many other exams to come in the future.PURCHASE HERE
Have you ever reacted to your child’s behaviour in a way that you regret? Have you noticed that it usually doesn’t help improve your child’s behaviour, and it can escalate the situation? Would you like to understand why this happens and what you can do about it?
When our kids are rude, demanding, or un-cooperative, when they provoke their siblings or ignore or flout the family rules, many parents are pushed to shouting, blaming and threatening. Losing our cool in these difficult moments is a lose/lose situation but it is a cycle that can be broken.
Join us to learn how our brains are wired and why certain behaviours push us to react, and what we can do to stay calmer in the face of challenging moments, so we can handle respond more effectively.PURCHASE HERE
Getting along with a sibling is a surprisingly complex matter! As each brother and sister tries to work out how to get along and share their lives, there is inevitably a level of whining, arguing, tale-telling, provoking and name-calling which all parents find challenging and upsetting.
When parents know how to nurture the sibling relationship and the most effective way to respond to moments of conflict, it creates a more harmonious and peaceful atmosphere at home.
This recorded workshop explains the dynamics of the sibling relationship and identifies major causes of conflict. We look at how parents can, inadvertently, contribute to sibling rivalry and reveals practical ways that parents can help children develop a positive relationship with each other. We also share the most effective way that parents can handle sibling arguments and fights that lead to improved behaviour and how parents can help their children learn to resolve their differences for themselves.PURCHASE HERE
Boys have many positive qualities, which can also be challenging for their parents, and often for the boys themselves.
It can be hard for boys to manage their energy appropriately, and many of them struggle with co-operation as well as organisation and focus. They can become excessively competitive and find it hard to win and lose appropriately. They are often tempted to push boundaries and challenge authority, and have difficulties accepting responsibility for their behaviour.
Learn key skills to channel energy and deal with excessive competitiveness, and help your sons develop better habits of co-operation and work within boundaries.
We can bring any of our workshops to you and a group of friends either by Zoom for £500 or in-person for £600*.

I attended your brilliant workshop on Anxiety last night – thank you so much. I have already been able to use some of your top tips and I want to hear more about how else we can support our daughter.
The Anxiety Workshop was absolutely brilliant, and so full of achievable everyday tips to help the kids (and ourselves!) achieve a more balanced emotional state. One of our kids is prone to anxious feelings and it’s a daily challenge to manage it so your advice was invaluable.
Attending the workshop was a great way to spend an evening together at home! It was a really good investment of our time to try to understand our son better and be the best parents we can.
The Girls & Friendship workshop was excellent. Recently my 12 year old daughter was in a friendship triangle fallout and I felt so capable to help her this time, whereas I have felt helpless before.
I underestimated how life-changing some of the advice from the Boys Workshop was. Descriptive Praise has done wonders for my son. He is happier, more relaxed, and better behaved as a result. And so are the rest of us!
Let The Parent Team help you find the best way forward for your family whether you want to make small changes to the dynamics at home, or need support with significant challenges.
