Want to know a bit more about the course? Read on! 'Understanding your child' is an online course for all parents, grandparents and carers of children aged 0-19 years. This course is a journey through knowledge. It builds up a way of looking at things that will be helpful for most situations.

This course has the content you can trust. It has been developed by the Solihull Approach team with Clinical Psychologists, Child Psychotherapists, Health Visitors, Parents, Child and Family Practitioners and many others.

There are 11 modules, each taking around 20 minutes. The Modules build on the ones before, creating a course. There are interactive activities, quizzes and video clips. There is also an optional voiceover. The course covers the foundations of wellbeing and mental health.

We do not recommend that you do this course in one go. There is a lot to take in and it is best done in small chunks, usually a Module at a time.

Keep going till the end as we know that parents and grandparents get a lot out of the course! We can't promise you a free gift at the end, but we can promise you a certificate!

‘Just wanted to say how grateful I am with this course. For me it's an absolute game changer and will enhance my life with my children and really make a difference. I'm so happy I have found this I could cry.’

Occasionally, for some people, this course can bring up difficult feelings, so it might be helpful to think about how to access further support, whether from your friends & family or even from professional services, in case this is your experience too. There is further information and support materials under “Further resources” in the final section of the course (“Looking back and looking forward”).

We know that there are many different families, with different backgrounds and shapes and sizes. We have tried to consider some of the different needs of different families in this course, but it hasn't been possible to account for all family backgrounds. If that is the case, we still hope that you find something helpful in the main ideas about developing close, connected relationships between parents and children.
