I Matter Framework Training for Parents - Carers

Ae you a parent or carer of a challenging child?    Or is your child quite typical?

How can you be more effective?  WHY does your child behave that way? And WHAT can YOU do to best help??   

Training in the I Matter Framework helps parents and carers understand better  

We bring research evidence together into a easy to understand practical whole

Training strengthens your ability to help your child - whether typical or more complex

When you understand the Why - then the What is much easier to implement.

However the truth is that parenting is not just about the kids!   There is a much bigger picture which is important - and fascinating.    Don't miss such an amazing opportunity to learn more as when you start to see clearly this changes everything.

I Matter for parents is not a typical parenting course.  We look at some much bigger questions about wellbeing in general, at how children develop, at the way the brain works and the adult role and at the power of our own beliefs and attitudes.

At the end of this course you will know why you matter and you will have some practical steps that you will be able to use to help you get to where you want to go as the best parent you can be for your child.

We want to work with parents and professionals in the context of community hubs to improve outcomes for children

This has to be something which we work on together.


Our offer for parents is still small and mainly delivered through member schools in the Kendal ICC area 

Our training pathways for parents have three elements

+ Everyday parenting - parents and carers supported by member schools

+ Higher Pressure Parenting - parents-and-carers linked to member schools-services

+ Children with complex needs - support for home-school co-ordinated care delivery

Due to the size of our organisation we are unable to take direct referral from parents-carers unless this referral comes from a licenced link professional who is able to be an informed point of contact with adult and child through out our work together. 

If you are a parent and you know a professional who could be interested please send them a link

I have a question

I have been looking for help for so long.  It has been so good taking part in this training together.  For the first time my husband and I are really working well as a team.  It feels so different     Parent of 3 complex children

I Matter  Training has helped me take a hard look at what has been happening without me feeling judged.   Now I understand better I can see that I was sometimes not helpful to my child.   Now we are moving on and life feels so different.   I wish I had had this training earlier.       Parent of challenging child
