Positive Parenting Campaign

'Parenting. Give it time’, which started in Autumn 2015, highlights how offering encouragement and praising children for good behaviour is more effective than harsh punishments when children do things wrong.

Parents are encouraged to give time to talk and listen to their children and given tips on how to encourage better behaviour, by adopting positive parenting strategies.  It also highlights the need for parents to look after their own well-being and help them manage stress.

Education begins at home

'Education Begins at Home' is a new Welsh Government campaign on how you can support your child at home and help their performance in school. Helping your child at home makes a difference to their performance in school. The home environment is the single biggest factor in educational attainment. By creating an environment that values education and supports a child’s learning, parents are giving their child a significant head start in life.

For more information email or visit their Facebook page 'Education begins at home'.
