“Excellent trainer! Really understand how to help delegates make a difference to self harmers, family, staff, etc. Highly relevant course expertly delivered and thoroughly aimed at enabling schools to build capacity and make a difference. Excellent!”
Andrew Morris, Assistant Head, Campion School
“The parents and the Children’s Centre really valued Easy Tiger Parent System™. It was successful and we liked it. We will run the course again.
I bought it as it sounded like something the parents would value as there was a group of parents with esteem issues and Easy Tiger Parent System™ touched on some interesting elements and fitted a number of interesting boxes and areas to meet parents’ needs. Some parents might be feeling guilty about balancing their work and personal life.
The outcome for us at the Children’s Centre and for parents was very positive.
Richard Beckett, Burnt Tree Children’s Centre Manager
“Those tips are really working. I can actually take time away from my nine year old son now who was really clingy before. I can go to my room for ten minutes now without being disturbed and it’s better than before. He is getting a bit more independent now and wants to go out by himself to the corner shop and do things by himself as he feels all grown up now. But I know that it’s me really that’s been holding onto him and I know that I need to start letting go. I will be joining a part time course in August. Thank you.”
Rajbinder Somal, Parent
‘This course makes my mind and eyes so clear and my body full of energy. I just can’t wait to do things I want to do.’
‘Easy Tiger parents course’ has helped me to improve myself as a person and improve relationships and it has given me tips on confidence building. It has helped me to improve my home life, self esteem, and allowed me to step back and evaluate my life and get a reality check. I am happier than I have ever been. Thank you so much for this Course. I am a lot more patient with my son now and stop myself when I am reacting. This course is like a safety net.’
‘It’s helped me to be more confident and has improved my relationship with my children and my husband. It has made me more determined to achieve my goals. This Programme is like a breath of fresh air.’
Sharifa Maftuha Karima, Parent
“I bought the Easy Tiger Parent System™ because it was highly recommended. I was dissatisfied with another parents programme because it was a bit of a hit and miss programme and the parents were not moving forward. I was looking for a good alternative programme and Easy Tiger Parent System™ was a good alternative programme.
The reasons we bought the Easy Tiger Parent System™ again are:
– The previous parents really enjoyed it and said how very worthwhile it was;
– Because you work with the parents from an holistic perspective and not just pick out certain things.
– It helps parents to look forward to the future and with their aspirations.”
The Easy Tiger Parent System™ Graduates are now looking forward to what they are doing now and in the future.”
Julia Thornton, Oaklands Park Children’s Centre, Manager
“I have been trained to deliver couple other parent programmes, but I bought Easy Tiger Parent System™ because it is something that the other programmes are not! Easy Tiger Parent System™ focuses on the parents whereas others focus on behaviour management of the children. The emphasis with Easy Tiger Parent System™ is on the parents and this is what parents need.”
Mandy Dyhouse, Bellfield Children’s Centre Coordinator
Jennifer has completed the delivery of a course with parents at Bertram Road Children’s Centre, addressing their confidence in their own parenting skills and their self esteem. The course went extremely well and the feedback from every parent who attended was very positive. Jennifer took time to both listen and talk to the parents and parents felt she took on board what they were saying and gave them strong advice.
Parents have told me that Jennifer has given them the confidence to become a better parent and to deal with parenting more confidently. Jennifer was always very positive and approachable both to parents and the staff team alike. I am confident we will be booking further groups with her to work with other parents in our unit and outreach area.
Sue Berry, Children’s Centre Manager, Bertram Road Children’s Centre
“It’s what parents have asked for; thought it would be a good experience for the parents. It was really good! And it has really worked for us here. Parents have carried on working together as a team a year later after the programme has finished. They talked about it for ages after it had finished.
Since the Easy Tiger Parents programme finished, parents have:
® Formed a parents parliament
® Discuss every day topics/issues relating to parents
® They bring other parents along as well
® They are doing it all by themselves
® Are helping other parents to join other workshops at the Children’s Centre
® They are really close now working as a team
® One parent has gained funding from west midlands police to start her own netball team. Team is up and running and meets at Bordesley Green Girls School. The netball team is now linked into the parents’ parliament (community development and community involvement!!)
® Parents have grown in confidence
® Joined other courses and groups
® Parents have said:
- how much closer they are now with their children
- That they have really bonded with their children.
- they are not rushing so much now as they used to before the programme
- at home they are working together more as a family/team
- life is so much easier for them now
- their children have left the Children’s Centre now but the parents want to stay and join in other parents activities
- Although the programme was intense at times, they have really benefited from it and every one of them stuck with it.
I would buy the programme again because it is so good.”
Lynne Rowe, Family Support Worker, Bertram Children’s Centre
“If it was not for this course I would not have achieved so much in such a short period of time with my son. We have bonded a lot more. There’s a massive difference in him – he shines now and seems to have ‘grown up’ over the last few weeks. Both school and grandparents have also noticed the difference in him.
School have decided to offer me a paid job because, they said, of how much my son has progressed and how much we have bonded, as a result of the Easy Tiger Parents programme.
I really enjoyed this course and it has helped me with my confidence and gave me the motivation to continue with and focus on my job-search for the career I want. I would have given up before. Every week/session was great”
‘I really enjoyed this course. It gave me a chance and time to evaluate my life and how it can be changed using small steps. It has also helped me to find the root cause of my problems. I haven’t felt like this for a long time and I was close to tears, and the staff were too, when I was telling them because they were so happy for me. What I have learnt from this course will be with me now throughout my life. Step Up! International – all the answers to my questions!’
