  • "I now take a step back and think about what has led to this behaviour."

Parenting with Confidence

Session Leader Kim Furnish

90 minutes 1:1 online coaching

This session will facilitate reflection on your parenting relationship. Children start to listen to their parents when they themselves start to take a look at their own behaviour and make some changes.

I will give you knowledge and skills to help you understand your relationship with your child. The session content will be based on my book  ‘Parenting a Violent Child’. The self-help book uses the setting of a parenting group to provide information and support to parents living with challenging behaviour. The content in the book works just as well with less challenging behaviour and has helped parents in many situations.

Who's the session for?

This session is for you if you are a parent/carer who would like to:

  • Improve your parenting skills
  • Understand your relationship with your children
  • Understand your child’s behaviour and your own behaviour

Aims / Benefits / Takeaways

This session will give you an understanding of your own and your child’s behaviour and show you how to take control of your situation.

My aim is to teach you:

  • Essential skills to navigate your way through your parenting journey
  • Strategies to de-escalate and maintain relationships
  • Effective communication skills
  • How you can nurture yourself and your child


Parents are the most important influence on their children and while it can be rewarding it can also be difficult. Often we can find ourselves stuck in patterns of behaviour struggling to find a way out. At times like this it is difficult to see the positives, in your child and in the situation.

Change is possible and patterns of behaviour can be altered. Raising your self-awareness will help you to break the cycle of stuck patterns and lead you towards a well-balanced parenting style.

I will help you to look at your trigger points, how you view your child, and how you and your children are getting your needs met. You will be encouraged to put down the magnifying glass, which is focusing on your child’s behaviour, and pick up the mirror to look at your own behaviour. This will mean that you are taking a more objective approach and are equipped to respond to your child in more appropriate ways.

If you find it hard to say “no” to your child you may be feeling out of control at home. This session will help you take a step towards taking back control and creating a happier home.
