Kids that develop self-control do better in life

Research shows that children who can control their impulses do better in social and academic situations. Parents learn:

  • How to manage conflict and behavioural issues
  • How to reduce stress in challenging situations
  • What happens when children and young people get upset
  • What parents can do to help them manage their emotions
  • How to help young people engage their ‘mental brakes’ and develop self-control, emotional resilience and maturity

Parentshop’s parent education programs are designed to promote and strengthen children, families and communities by providing clinical practitioners, family law professionals and families with an alternative approach to discipline. These practical, effective, real-world solutions help address common behaviour issues in young people.

Our programs are easy for parents to understand and implement for short and long-term benefit. They empower confidence in parents and help them to improve family bonds by better relating to their children.
