Lorraine has three children and a background in Child Psychology, Positive Parenting Training and Child Development. She is incredibly passionate about giving children and young people the best chances possible. To that end, these training methods is designed to inform, equip and support all those with a role in the lives of our amazing children and young people.

The current pandemic situation has not made parenting an easy feat and there will be concerns about your children and their social interaction and situation post lockdown. Children have been so used to the past year of limited contact that this can impact their social awareness.

Now that children are back at school, giving them social responsibilities and increasing their independence is more important now than ever. To help the wheels in motion, make sure you involve them in the daily routines and preparation, this not only helps their independent thinking, but their ability to take on some responsibility.

Lorraine will be hosting some great workshops over the coming months:

On the 25th March there is a a zoom workshop equipping parents to help their children rediscover the SCOPE of learning. To engage with it both at school and at home.

“Children are in education for a long time! Having a love of learning rather than just specific subjects is a real asset and can help children develop essential additional skills in addition to their academic knowledge.”
