I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to Queen’s Crescent Parents. As your parent support adviser I am able to support and advise parents/carers with a variety of issues. I appreciate that at times parenting can present challenges. Therefore, I am available to assist with concerns around a whole range of behaviours. If appropriate I can work with parents individually, signpost or refer to relevant services. Also, I can help with any outside influence which impacts on children and families. This includes referring and signposting to financial advice services, housing support and health services. Additionally, I have information on local specialist opportunities and holiday/term time clubs.
I am in school every Wednesday and can be contacted directly, via school reception or just ask your class teacher. So, if you have any questions regarding social, behavioural, health or education please do not hesitate to contact me. If I am unable to help personally, I will endeavour to find someone who can. This is a confidential service and I am happy to meet with you at home, school or if desired a neutral venue.
I am accredited to facilitate Triple P Primary and Teen Triple P parenting courses. This is a system with easy to implement, proven parenting solutions that help solve current parenting problems and future problems before they arise. The Primary course is aimed at parents of children 4-12 years, the programme looks at strategies including use of behaviour charts, giving logical consequences and using clear, calm instructions. Use of DVD and group discussion means that parents can see the strategies in action as well as having a chance to use them at home and share their experiences.
Finally, I wish all the children and families at Queen’s Crescent a happy and successful year!
