Family Caring Trust
The 'Noughts to Sixes', 'Fives to Fifteens', 'Teenagers' parenting programmes
For over a decade, the Trust's resources have been the most popular parenting materials in Britain and Ireland - over half a million parents have experienced at least one of the courses. They have also been translated into Afrikaans, Arabic, Bengali, Czech, Danish, Icelandic, Japanese, Latvian, Punjabi, Russian, Somali, Spanish, Tamil, Urdu, Welsh and Xhosa. They are widely used by social services, and by well over a thousand schools and adult education bodies, and they have been adopted or endorsed by many organisations including all the mainstream churches.
The 'Noughts to Sixes' parenting programme.
Seven or eight weekly sessions offering effective parenting support to parents of babies, toddlers, pre-schoolers and children in the first few years of primary school. Simply written, jargon-free, common sense approach. Produced in co-operation with Barnardos. The boxed kit includes audio-visual input (choose either DVD or video format - both are supplied) incorporating the BBC's acclaimed QED programme on parenting, also two leader's guides, twenty-five certificates, and one copy of the parent's handbook, From Pram to Primary School.
The 'Fives to Fifteens' programme.
Eight weekly sessions to help parents of children five to fifteen years old to improve their communication skills and create a framework of discipline and respect in their families. The boxed kit includes about 10 minutes' audio-visual input for each session (choose either DVD or video format - both are supplied), also, two leader's guides, twenty-five certificates, and one copy of the parent's handbook, What Can A Parent Do? Parents of children of up to 7 or 8 years usually get more out of this course if they have done the 0-6 course first.
The 'Parenting Teenagers' programme.
Six to eight weekly sessions to reinforce the same parenting skills while dealing with the more difficult situations met in the teen years. Because it is so important to reinforce skills being learnt, it is recommended that parents of teenagers experience the Fives to Fifteens programme first (though this is not essential). The boxed kit includes audio-visual input (choose either DVD or video format - both are supplied), also, two leader’s guides, twenty-five certificates, and one copy of the parent's handbook, What Can The Parent Of A Teenager Do?
