Please find below information on the SOLIHULL online parenting programme which is FREE for all parents in the Liverpool area and provided by Liverpool City Council:
To all parents, grandparents and carers:
· We believe parents are their children’s first and most important educators.
· We are committed to developing a strong relationship between parents and school.
· We also encourage children to develop ‘growth mind-sets’, so children believe that ability and success are not pre-determined, but due to learning.
We are therefore delighted to offer you FREE access to a range of online courses, normally £9-£39 per person.
These courses are for ALL parents-to-be, parents, grandparents or carers of any child from antenatal up to age 18 years who want to be the best they can be. You don’t need to be struggling. This course is relevant to parents of all children, including those with special needs, autism, ADHD etc.

How your child develops
Introduction to how the course works, lots of great information about what is going on inside your child’s brain and how this affects their behaviour.
Understanding how your child is feeling
Exploring the signs and signals that tell you how your child is feeling.
Tuning into what your child needs
Responding to how your child is feeling
Different styles of Parenting
Having fun together
Rhythm of interaction
In this session we’re going to look at what’s called the Dance of Reciprocity, the way that we communicate with each other and our children. We are going to think about what this teaches us about managing feelings and behaviour.
Why sleep is important?
In this session we’re going to explore how sleep is directly linked to your child’s healthy development as well as to their mental and physical wellbeing. We are also going to explore the link between reciprocity and everyday behaviours such as sleep.
Self Regulation and Anger
In this session we’re going to continue looking at self-regulation and think about the way in which our understanding of the Dance of Reciprocity affects self-regulation
Communication and tuning in
In this session we’re going to look at how the way we communicate shapes and reflects the relationship between parent and child. Because the ways we communicate are not always perfect and we’re not always in tune with our children, we’re going to explore how to make things better.
Looking back and looking forward
This session will be a little different as it’s the last one. We’re going to draw the course to a close, reflect on containment and reciprocity, and summarise what has been going on over the last 10 modules.
