Who is How To Manage Challenging Parents for?
How To Manage Challenging Parents is written for teaching and office staff. It includes practical strategies that are appropriate in both primary and secondary schools.
Is this relevant to my school?
Unfortunately, verbal (and physical) abuse from parents is becoming more common. That makes it relevant to all schools.
Do I need to know a lot about this topic to run the training?
No. I'll guide your staff through all the strategies in a step-by-step fashion. You won't be put on the spot - and you don't need any prior knowledge.
Is this as good as having you train my teaching staff in person?
Not quite - for a start, you can't ask me questions.
But with How To Manage Challenging Parents, you pay once and get lifetime access to the material, so you can re-use it as often as you want. If you wanted me to train your staff in person, it would cost £279 (ex-VAT) for every single visit.
Will using these strategies completely eliminate challenging behaviour?
No - that's beyond our control. But it will equip your staff for when these situations happen.
What handouts are included for my teaching staff?
I provide strategy booklets, covering key points from the training, and attendance certificates for your attendees. You will need to print these out before the training starts.
How does the training work?
It's a series of training videos, interspersed with group tasks.
I'll explain clearly what each task involves, and even include a timer so your staff know how much time they have left.
As facilitator, you'll occasionally be asked to record answers from the group on flipchart paper.
How do I get ready for the training?
Included in the training is a facilitator's handbook. It's a step-by-step checklist of what you need to get ready for the training.
It even includes a sign-in sheet, so you can record who attended the training.
Do I need to be technically minded to run the training?
No. If you can play an internet video with sound on a projector or interactive whiteboard, you have all the technical skills you need.
