Parenting Programmes for Families at Your School

Problems at home can spill over into the classroom, which can make teaching a lot harder. So, supporting parents to improve family life can make a big difference to schools. The Parents Plus charity is Ireland’s leading provider of high-quality evidence-based parenting programmes.  We are a social enterprise who recently received RTÉ Toy Show/Community Foundation of Ireland funding to extend our parenting programmes online. This means we can now reach every community, including yours. 

Our programmes make a measurable impact for parents, children and families. Our results show they reduce stress for parents by helping them to: 

·        Reduce conflict with their child, 

·        Have a more connected satisfying relationship with them, 

·        Cultivate improved behaviour, and

·        Gain skills in tuning-in positively, listening, communicating and problem-solving 

Teachers may know parents who are struggling and who want to learn new positive parenting skills to improve their family life, and help their children with schoolwork. 

We offer a suite of Parents Plus programmes across various age ranges and categories:

·        Early Years (0-6), covers daily routines, managing tantrums, encouraging learning, tuning in, emotional development. 

·        Children’s Programme (6-11), covers building self-esteem, supporting schoolwork, emotional support, behavioural management techniques.  

·        Adolescent Programme, staying connected, rules & boundaries, & solving problems together.

·        Parenting When Separated, includes areas such as co-parenting & emotional support for children.

·        Healthy Families Programme (0-10) covers the development of healthy habits for the family, establishing good routines around sleep, screen time, activity, happy mealtimes. 

·        Special Needs Programme (11-18) supporting parents to cope, good routines, self care, managing behaviours that challenge, supporting siblings, developing social connections.

Teachers can help parents access these programmes by sharing this information link in school emails, newsletters or website:
