Family Skills Program

Learning Ground has designed its Family Skills Program for parents who really want their kids to enjoy growing up, to have school lives less troubled and grow into strong young men and women who can manage their own lives and learn to appreciate others.


Family Skills is a program designed to meet the needs of all parents. Recognising it is not easy bringing up children in a world full of electronic devices, where the use of mobile phones can be helpful but can also create harm, where electronic games can be good for a young brain but can also be harmful especially in some of the messages the games send. Family Skills is designed to support parents and older family members to help young ones face the challenges of growing up in today's world. It also helps to promote and maintain the relationship between parent and child to be trusting and supportive of one another.
