6 week course content
The course notes are accessible from the time you sign up . You can work through the pre recorded modules at your own pace. Then over 6 weeks from 26th January every Tuesday night 8-9pm there will be live coaching to consolidate what you have learnt and ask questions relevant to you and your family.
In each module parents learn skills which are applicable to all ages but the majority of our clients have children under 12. This does not mean that the course won't be right for parents of teenagers but you might also like to try our Teens workshops.
The Harmony at Home online course has the advantage of being easily accessible, whether in lockdown or not, and avoids the necessity of travelling or booking childcare. It makes it easy for couples to do the course together. If you need to explore issues in more depth we recommend you book a parent coaching
