NHS Parenting Course 'Understanding Your Child'

We have been asked at Christ Church to trial an online parenting course. We have sent a letter home inviting you to log-on to the online course all about children , their development, emotions and behaviour. I do hope that you will have a look at the course elements and that you find it useful. The course is fully funded by the Local Authority SEMH partnership.

Details of how to log in were included on the letter home, please contact school if you need another copy of the letter or support when logging in.

I have also received an additional offer:

I am writing to let you know that we recently added our latest short course to your licence Free of Charge:

Ø  ‘Understanding your teenager’s brain’.

Please let your parents know, especially those with children at the top end of the school.


Also we have permission to share this video prepared by a Scottish Primary school to promote the courses in their school community. Tell us your creative ideas about how you could plan to use this in your school? Twitter? Email? Coffee morning? Parents’ evening? We would love to hear from you!



In the video one father says of ‘Understanding your child’:

“It makes the biology and psychology very easy to understand and accessible. What I’ve liked is its helped me understand my child in terms of where he is in terms of developing physically, and emotionally how he might be feeling at particular times. If I understand what he’s feeling it helps my empathy and I think that helps me reflect as a parent. So I found it good!”
