Incredible Years

Incredible Years is an evidence-based support programme for parents of children aged between three and eight years.

It can help you deal with challenging behaviours such as aggressiveness, answering back, refusing to follow rules and other acting out behaviours in a positive way. It’s all about creating an enjoyable and harmonious family life!

During the 14 week programme you’ll gain useful knowledge and learn practical skills that will help you build strong relationships with your children and promote positive behaviour. Topics include:

  • helping your child learn through play
  • encouraging good behaviour through praise, encouragement and incentives
  • setting limits and following through with consequences such as time out
  • teaching children to problem solve.

Key to Incredible Years is the valuable insights you’ll gain from other parents as you discuss parenting principles and strategies, share experiences and identify your own strengths, and learn that you’re not alone.
