10am - 10.45am: Keeping Your Child Safe Online

(Also delivered in community languages, Bengali and Somali), Zoom links for these sessions will be shared in the chat during the start of the session.

The internet is amazing. Children can play, learn, create and connect, opening up a world of exciting possibilities, but do you worry about the amount of time your child is spending online, using social media or playing computer games?

Find out more about your child’s online world and pick up some useful tips to help keep them safe including how to manage screen time conflict, support children’s online learning, understand school learning platforms and learn about online dangers.

11am - 11.45am: Making Learning Stick

Revision is key to making learning stick, yet so many students don’t know how to do it well. Join this inspiring webinar to explore ways parents can support students develop good learning habits like revision.

Based on the very latest research, you’ll discover the most effective revision methods and exam techniques to ensure students can perform at their very best during exams.

12pm - 12.45pm: Healthy Child, Happy Child

Do you worry about your child’s weight? Having an underweight or overweight child can make us worry and it is a sensitive issue to address. Research shows children who achieve a healthy weight tend to be fitter, healthier, better able to learn, more self-confident and develop lifelong habits for a healthier adult life.Join our webinar to pick up useful tips on how to help your child maintain a healthy weight.

1pm - 1.45pm: We All Have Arguments

How can you use yours to help children manage difficult conversations?

It is impossible to avoid conflict- parents can’t avoid it and neither can children: from domestic chores to Pokémon cards daily life is full of difficult conversations.

In this workshop we will explore how to manage conflict in the home in a way that helps children learn how to cope with conflict in their own lives.

2pm - 2.45pm: Bridging the Communication Gap

(Also delivered in community languages, Bengali and Somali)

As children grow and learn it’s natural for them to develop their own thoughts and ideas. In some families, this can create friction and lead to a communication gap. Join this interactive webinar to explore ways parents can meet their children in the middle, improve communication and create stronger family bonds.

6pm -7pm: Evening Webinar and Conference Close

6pm – 7pm: Anti-Bullying and Behaviour Support for Parents (Evening Webinar)

The session will provide top tips about what to do if you’re worried about bullying and behaviour. It will explore ways to help you talk to your child about these issues as well as communicating with your child’s school about bullying and behaviour concerns.

Conference Close
