The Incredible Years

The Incredible Years

Background

The Incredible Years® is an evidenced based and internationally acclaimed parent/caregiver programme that focuses on strengthening your parent/caregiver competencies and fostering involvement in your children’s school experiences, to promote their academic, social and emotional skills and consequently reduce any conduct problems.

Course Outline

This course is aimed at parents/caregivers of children aged 3-8 years.

KJB Consulting Limited holds the Ministry of Education contract to deliver this programme, and it is facilitated in Taranaki by Krystal Burrell, Carla Moore, Katy Quest, Alise Benson-Armstrong, Michelle Shaw and Sonya Goodchild-Brooks.

Group sessions focus on strengthening parent-child interactions, nurturing relationships, reducing harsh discipline, and fostering parents’ ability to promote children’s social, emotional, and language development. These groups encourage parents as they learn to promote school readiness skills.

Parents/caregivers are encouraged to partner with teachers in schools and be involved in school experiences to promote children’s academic and social skills, emotional self-regulation, and to reduce conduct problems.

Specifically the course covers:

• The importance of parental attention and special time with children
• Academic persistence, emotion and social coaching
• Effective praise and encouragement
• Using incentives to motivate children
• Household rules, responsibilities, and routines
• Monitoring children’s whereabouts
• Clear and respectful limit setting
• Ignoring misbehaviour
• Using time out for destructive behaviour & extreme oppositional behaviour
• Imposing logical & natural consequences

We have seen a 100% improvement post attending the workshops. Our house is a much calmer place now, with a better overall atmosphere.

Bernadette (Incredible Years and Toolbox)

The main benefit for me was in gaining connection with my child! An understanding learned that you are there to coach them into becoming their own person, and helping them through their challenges.

Jess (Incredible Years)

I felt quite overwhelmed and out of control at the start of this course. I feel so much different now, and have so many tools to use. My continued focus is on the bottom of the pyramid techniques – connection, play, positivity, ambulance at the top of the cliff, and the judgement free zone of people who really understood what I was going through. Wonderful teachers – thank you so much for everything.
