Who is Family First: Behaviour Secrets for?
It's for parents of children from 3 to 11 whose children have difficulties managing their emotions or engage in negative behaviour. This is natural and happens to lots of parents (but very few people talk about it.)
You don't need any special expertise or experience to get the most out of the programme.
How does the programme work?
It's a series of short, sharp videos and quizzes.
In each video, we'll guide you through a simple strategy or idea you can start using immediately.
As you work through the programme, we'll give you extra advice and ideas by email to keep your momentum going.
Will this programme help if my child has a diagnosis of autism or ADHD?
Family First is not an autism- or ADHD-specific programme.
However, the techniques described will help many children with a diagnosis cope with strong emotions, settle into routines and learn to attract adult attention in a positive way.
Do I need to be technically minded to use the programme?
No. If you can log into a website and watch a YouTube video you have all the skills you need.
At the end of the programme, do I lose all the videos?
No. You'll have lifetime access to the videos, so you can come back to the content whenever you need it.
How long will it take to learn the strategies?
No one picked up a tennis racquet on a Monday and became a Wimbledon champion on a Tuesday. The truth is, you'll need to practise some of these strategies to get the best out of them.
That's why we continue to send you emails packed full of support, advice and ideas as you work through the programme.
Is Family First trying to erase my child's personality and turn them into a mindless robot?
Absolutely not. We like your child's personality just the way it is 😀
The aim is to help your child develop into their best selves, learn to cope with strong emotions and minimise unkind or negative behaviour.
I represent a school. Can we buy this programme and share it with all our parents?
No - use Family First for Schools instead!
