Incredible Years

Practical Skills & Parenting Advice

Practical skills and parenting advice for parents and caregivers of children aged 3-7 years

Through using a range of strategies, parents and teachers help children regulate their emotions and improve their social skills so that they can get along better with peers and adults and do better academically. It can also mean a more enjoyable family life.

Incredible Years is a 14 week programme for parents of children aged between 3–7 years. In this group we will support each other as we explore what gets in the way of us being the parent that we want to be; how to deal with difficult situations in a practical manner and yet still have humour and compassion for ourselves.

Parents will learn:

  • As a parent, what do I want to do differently?
  • What do I want my child to remember?
  • How do children tell us what they want?
  • How can I talk so our children can listen?
  • How do we know that we are loved?
  • How can I keep our children safe?
  • What are thinking words versus fighting words?
  • How can I achieve open communication?
  • How do I go from where I am now to where I want to be?
