Term 3 - Raising Mighty Boys

(19th August– 12th September 2016) 
Don’t be fooled by the title, even parents of girls need to know how boys tick. Unlock the secrets to raising boys of any age so that they become more confident; achieve more at school; talk about what’s on their minds; better manage anger and other strong emotions; and make the most of their natural strengths. 

Term 4 - Mood Meter for Parents

Want to help your children be the best they can be? Then you need to build their emotional intelligence. Michael draws on the research from the team at the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence to help you give your kids the tools they need to recognise, manage and regulate their emotions.
