Help is at hand with the Positive Parenting Campaign

It’s normal for children to go through tricky periods and to display signs of unwanted behaviours, so it’s important for parents and other carers to feel that they are not alone and know where to find support when they need it.

Through the ‘Parenting. Give it time’ website, you can find a range of hints and tips which support parents, and those who care for children, through the early years. There’s advice on tantrums, bed time routines, potty training, mealtimes and everything in between!

We have developed a number of helpful and fun resources including a ‘Scavenger hunt’ to play at the park, a game of ‘What can I see?’ for car journeys and a ‘Placemat’ to colour and personalise. The resources are all free to download  Positive Parenting
