Description

Mothering Sunday found new meaning for over 150 proud mothers and their families at the Royal Lounge Banqueting Suite in Wembley on Mother’s Day. Brilliant Parents, a local social enterprise, honoured mothers from all around North West London, with their first ever Mother’s Day fundraising event on 11th March.

As a result of the event, Brilliant Parents will be delivering a FREE Triple P seminar entitled Raising Responsible Teenagers in Brent for parents with teenagers aged 11 - 16 years of age. The seminar will take place at St Patrick’s Catholic Church, 24 Hardie Close, Neasden NW10 0UH in on Wednesday 20th June from 6.30pm - 8pm.

The Mother's Day fundraising event was hosted by popular radio presenter, Angie Greaves from Magic FM. The prestigious event, paid tribute to mothers, nominated by their families, in aid of raising awareness of funds and awareness of positive parenting.

Sponsored by SheaMoisture Hair products, the event acknowledged mother’s in, Mother, Grandmother, Foster mother and Carer of the year categories. The biggest cheer of the evening went to the eldest mother in the house, the effervescent Mrs Rachel Anderson, aged ninety-four from Kensal Rise.
During an action-packed programme that included a powerful Keynote address from Reverend Rose Hudson-Wilkin, the 79th Chaplain to the Speaker of the House of Commons, the packed arena was surveyed and asked whether or not they felt parenting classes should be as readily available as ante-natal classes. An overwhelming number (98.1%) agreed. Brilliant Parents intend to use this data as a catalyst for a parliamentary debate on parenting classes in the UK.

Meave Darroux, Chief Executive of Brilliant Parents an enterprise supporting parents for several years, added “more and more parents are feeling overwhelmed by the changes in parenting guidance resulting in them feeling that their hands ‘tied behind their backs’ as children today have all the rights, but very little of the responsibility. We want to have a national conversation that help parents through this to result in better outcomes for the parents and the family.

Brilliant Parents, based in North West London provides the internationally evidence-based Triple P - Positive Parenting Program® for parents in the London boroughs of Brent, Harrow, Camden, Hillingdon to name a few. It has been commissioned by London local authorities, schools and the NHS. Brilliant Parents see it as their mission to normalise parenting classes: classes which are praised by parents as “so good they should be obligatory for parents across the UK”.
