Courses suitable for primary-age children include ‘Incredible Years’ and ‘Timid Tigers’

Below is an overview of Timid Tigers and the the view of one of our parents:

Timid to tiger course is for parents of anxious children presenting some challenging behaviours.

Parents often say ‘but my child is not anxious’. If children are presenting a challenging behaviour, they are likely to be experiencing some emotional problems that would need addressing before tackling the behaviour. Most often their behaviour is a way of communicating their emotions, therefore only through addressing emotions we can effectively correct the behaviour.

As a parent I believe the course is incredibly helpful and I would like to encourage any struggling parents to put their name forward on the course’s waiting list. The course looks into plenty of real life examples quoted by the attendees and engages everyone to find the root cause and look for possible resolutions. It consists of 10 2h sessions and can be taken online or face to face.

The school Nurse Team also offer a range of helpful webinars that can be accessed without referal. For information and booking, see below.
