Resources to help families with issues having disagreements in Nottinghamshire.
All families have disagreements and this is normal, but in times of stress these disagreements can increase and affect the whole family, including the children.
The Relationships Really Matter Programme in Nottinghamshire offers resources to parents to recognise the difference between normal arguments and when their disagreements are becoming more intense, frequent and are not easily resolved.
The programme shows where they can access support to improve their communication and relationships.
It offers support to all parents and carers, whether they are together or separated.
Support is available for parents and carers via the Notts Help yourself webpage on the Relationships Really matter pages – Relationships Really Matter: | Notts Help Yourself
Here parents/carers can find lots of helpful information about what parental conflict is and what support is available locally and nationally to help them improve their communication.
The One plus One Programme offers three FREE online resources that parents and carers can work through to help them learn to cope with stress and communicate better, wherever they are in their parenting journey:
- Me You and Baby Too is for expectant and new parents looking at how to communicate well and why it is important for your baby.
- Arguing Better is for couples that are still in a relationship but want to communicate better in times of stress.
- Getting it Right for the Children is for separating and separated parents/carers looking at how to stop children being pulled into the middle of what is happening.
