Solihull Online is a universal resource for parents and carers from the antenatal period to 19 years. It offers a series of modules containing interactive activities, quizzes and video clips. It  focusses on developing nurturing and supportive relationships between children and their carers. Its aim is to help parents understand their child’s behaviour in the context of their child’s development and the parent-child relationship. The following courses are available free for parents/carers in Scotland-

  • Understanding pregnancy, labour, birth and your baby
  • Understanding your baby
  • Understanding your child
  • Understanding your teenager’s brain

The resource is being brought to the public in partnership with NES, the Solihull approach is one that has been widely adopted by health professionals and children’s services practitioners for a number of years.


Parenting Programmes courses to help parents with their child or teenager’s behaviour

The Parent and Carer Support team have been liaising with partners about how we can support parents who are experiencing difficulties, such as phone support, online parenting programmes and advice to professionals working with families. Our face-to-face courses for parents have temporarily been postponed, however we are still accepting online applications for Triple P and Teen Triple P parenting programmes and we will keep applicants informed about the types of support which are still available.
