ParentClub.Scot is a digital information resource, support hub and online community supported by the Scottish Government. It aims to offer practical advice and support for families across Scotland. The wesbite includes tips and advice on a wide range of subjects, including coping with challenging behaviours.
From 7th November 2020, all physical punishment of a child will be illegal, meaning children in Scotland will have the same protections against assault as adults.
We understand that being a parent or carer is the best job in the work but there will be days when it all feels a bit too much for parents and that it can be difficult to keep calm when kids are acting up.
To help support families manage challenges, especially during the COVID, Parent Club Scotland have started a Positive Parenting Campaign which provides tips on coping with being a parent and keeping calm with children to help build relationships.
For further information, please visit: www.parentclub.scot/topics/coronavirus/coping-with-parenting
