Nurture Programme Week 5

Over the next 10 weeks, we will be sharing tips and information from the Nurture group – a parenting programme for families with children aged 2-10 years. Welcome to Week 5!

This week in our Nurture Group we have been discussing how to become more aware of our own feelings and healthy ways to express them. This helps us to respond supportively which decreases the chance of explosive behaviour.

It is important to recognise the way we speak to our children can trigger certain emotions too. Take a look at this practice sheet and have a go at home. Notice the difference it will make after consistently using this approach for even a short period.

If you have been using our parenting tips, have a go at filling out the family log. It’s surprising how much of a difference using a few simple strategies at home can make.
