Congratulations to the twelve parents who have successfully completed the Fives to Pre-Teens Parenting Course which ran for eight weeks at St Wilfrid’s Catholic Primary School, Sheffield.

All the parents showed a great deal of commitment to the course which was led by Laura Rendell from Hallam Caring Services and Linda McLoughlin, St Wilfrid’s Learning Mentor. Some of the skills looked at were active listening, encouragement, choices and consequences and holding family meetings.  The parents all feel they have some new ideas and approaches to help them develop better relationships in their families.  As one parent said, “Small changes have made a big difference.”

Linda hopes to run another course in the spring. For more information, please contact Linda at St Wilfrid’s School, l.mcloughlin@stwilfridssheffield.co.uk.
