Bringing Up Great Kids Resources

Thoughtful Parenting Kit

The Thoughtful Parenting Kit has been designed to offer an important set of resources for parents/carers to think about what is important to them about their parenting. It aims to generate discussion between parents and carers. It includes a set of nine chapter videos and guide. Each chapter explores a specific theme that is relevant to parenting –the issues, the joys and the challenges.

This Kit is not just for parents. Many people are involved in parenting or caring for children these days, including grandparents, uncles and aunts or foster carers. This kit is for all people who have caring roles with children. At the end of each chapter, there are questions that can be used to generate discussion about the experiences of parenting.

It is free to watch and download and can be used with parents/carers at no cost.

During the COVID19 emergency, children remain at the heart of everything we do…

COVID-19 has turned the world of children and families upside down in a very short period of time. We have really thought about how children’s worlds have been affected. Located in our understanding of child centred practice, the Foundation continues to develop a series of unique resources that can be used by parents and carers to explore the meanings that children have given to their experiences.
