Family Thrive

Family Thrive

Mrs Hiscox is now a qualified Family Thrive practitioner and runs 6 week courses for parents and carers that introduce the fundamentals of Thrive and how it works in practice. In these sessions parents/carers can learn about the amazing growth of a child’s brain through childhood and help support their emotional development. Some of the key areas covered are:

  • how our brains develop

  • how your right brain talks to your left brain!

  • why play and creativity are so important to you and your child

  • how to support your child at times of change and difficulty

  • everyday trigger times and how to keep calm

  • how to be a behaviour detective

  • Thrive at Harlands


"I started this course thinking this wasn't for me... I love this course and have gone on to start a child psychology degree... It's made parenting easier"


"This course has been amazing at helping me to understand my daughters emotions and behaviours during difficult situations"
