“I just want to say how much non-violent resistance (NVR) really does work! Over a year I would get hit daily by my six year old son. He would have outburst after outburst without explanation. I’m not afraid to admit it was a living hell for a while. But that soon changed. Having tried various strategies and being turned away from the doctor’s, going to the Parents Moving Forward workshops was almost a last resort. I was very sceptical and didn’t expect much. I was wrong. It has changed mine and my children’s lives for good.

“Over the past year as a family we have been through some tough times including bereavement, financial worries, relationship break ups, anxiety the list goes on. But instead of giving up, thanks to Learning Links’ Families team and our amazing support worker Lenka, I have the strength to control and manage the children’s behaviour and to respond the right way to the outbursts.”

“A year ago I couldn’t face taking all three of my boys anywhere especially alone. Now I have my anxiety under control. I can manage to leave the house and enjoy being with my boys. I can deal with the outbursts in a calm and controlled way. This week my twins received ‘star of the week’ for the very first time at school. My eldest got rewarded for having a whole week at home and at school with no outbursts and no violence. I went to the doctor’s at the last minute and all three boys were so good! I even managed to do the food shopping with them all without feeling stressed once! I’m such a proud Mummy. I’m learning to love my self and realise that giving up was never an option.

So I thank you for teaching me how to get back control. I thank you for the friends I have made through the NVR workshops and I thank you Lenka for being my support even when I was at the lowest of lows you picked me up and taught me to let it go…..for now!”
