Incredible Years Parents’ Courses in 2018

sensory finger-painting at ChildForum.comWho has had parents attending one of these courses or has personally attended?  Let us know if you would continue to recommend the course.

Incredible Years is a 14-session programme for parents of children aged 3 to 8 years.

Parents are taught ways to help promote their children’s social and problem solving skills.

Parents also learn what to do at home when children show challenging behaviours, such as aggressiveness and ongoing tantrums.

Parents are coached in ways to:

  • make time to play and spend time with their children and let their children lead the play
  • encourage the behaviours they would like to see, through setting clear rules and boundaries and using praise and encouragement
  • use consequences selectively such as ignoring, loss of privileges and time-out to calm down.

The programme is provided free and there is no cost to participate.

Four Incredible Years programmes will be offered to parents in Hawke’s Bay in the first six months of 2018 in Napier and Hastings. For information and to make a booking contact: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
