    Those tips are really working. I can actually take time away from my nine year old son now who was really clingy before. I can go to my room for ten minutes now without being disturbed and it’s better than before. He is getting a bit more independent now and wants to go out by himself to the corner shop and do things by himself as he feels all grown up now. But I know that it’s me really that’s been holding onto him and I know that I need to start letting go. I will be joining a part time course in August. Thank you.
    Rajbinder Somal, Parent

    I feel so much lighter now. It feels like the pressure of the driving test has gone. My driving test seems just like a simple, little every day task now, instead of the big challenge it used to be. I can also support my partner more now instead of always being negative and knock every good idea he had in the past.

    ‘It’s all falling into place now! I thought I was going mad’ (with tears in her eyes)
    Carol, Sure Start Parent

    ‘I was feeling tired, anxious, confused and lacking confidence about whether to leave my current full time job that I love, to work part time because I wanted to spend more quality time with my son of 16 months. I was feeling guilty about him being at nursery and that I was leaving for work early in the morning and only having a short time to spend with him in the evenings, including cooking and cleaning. I had already approached my Supervisor about leaving my full time job and he didn’t want me to go. I love my job and have the responsibility for managing the whole Section.

    After working with Jennifer, I felt so totally self assured, confident and calmer in myself and had peace of mind in the decision I had made to stay full time in my current role. I had clarity of what I needed to do for the best for myself and my son and I am confident in my ability to find more creative ways and quality time to spend with him’.
    Zalika, Boots

    I am a single parent and have two boys myself, 11 and 16 years of age. My 16 year old can cook (and cooks the best pasta bake that I have ever tasted!!!!!), iron, knows how to clean and wash his own clothes and is responsible for getting himself up in the morning. Gone are the days when I used to endure his Billy Goat Gruff attitude first thing in the morning trying to wake him up, which would leave me totally stressed out and feeling out of sorts for the morning!

    Although he doesn’t have to wash his own clothes, he ends up doing it from time to time, however, if he has run out of all his favourite clothes! If your children are anything like mine, they only wear their favourite clothes!

    I wash his clothes providing they are in the laundry room available for me to wash them!

    I don’t normally watch much television and certainly didn’t used to watch programmes like Wife Swop. I happened to watch my first real episode quite recently, by chance, only because my children were watching it and I thought I would chill out with them at that time.

    I found it quite intriguing for all different reasons. One of the episodes that I do remember quite distinctly is where a mother of five children was still doing everything for her 21 year old son (and everyone else), including waking him up every morning and cleaning up his dog’s mess every day! After her Wife Swop experience, she was able to (reluctantly!) allow him to take responsibility for his own actions and make decisions for himself. Is this you?

    Children need boundaries and need to learn to take responsibilities for their actions and accountability. This is their preparation for going out into the big wide world!

    here’s what some young people and others have to say about our services:

    ‘This is the best Workshop we’ve had’
    Birmingham University Student

    It was useful to understand our goals broken down and the steps needed for us to progress forward, for ourselves and no one else.
    Michaela, Halesowen College Student

    I really enjoyed the Workshop; it really boosted my self confidence and made me realise there are so many opportunities out there for me.
    Rufaro, Halesowen College Student

    The Workshop opened our minds about what we can achieve not just for our families, but mostly today, I learnt that it was important for me to achieve for myself.
    La Tanya Mais, Halesowen College Student

    The sessions provided a rare opportunity for students to think broadly about what it means to ‘create their own success’. While all 8 tools were essential in helping students realise this phrase, I felt that the breakdown of the Life Action Plan and the Success Mindset Principles™ were very practical exercises that showed students how to pull apart and understand their aspirations and life choices. It also helped students learn from previous accomplishments, which I find an amazingly useful tool in my own life. Your workshops reminded students (and myself to be honest) that the onus is upon the individual to create the future they’d like to have. However, it also showed the importance of identifying available support and making full use of it.
    Rashidah Andrews, Training Consultant, Halesowen College

    Jennifer’s Talk tonight has helped to confirm and clarify my vision. It has pushed me to finish writing my plan (or else it will only remain a dream!). Tonight was a BLESSING J
    Nadine Grant, Women of Destiny

    ‘Can we do this again Miss?’
    Year 8 Pupil, Castle Vale School

    ‘From today, I will not to let anyone put me down’
    ‘I will value each opportunity I receive’
    ‘I am starting to think about how I can do what I want instead of how I can’t’
    ‘Start thinking about how I can do what I want instead of how I can’t’
    ‘How to break down the problem of getting a job into manageable chunks’
    City College Students

    ‘The Workshop to help young girls to achieve their dreams was very inspirational. The majority of the 90 girls who took part were really interested in finding out how to reach their goals and benefited not only from the stepped approach from the fact that they were told they could achieve whatever they put their mind to.

    The girls were actively involved in both the Talk and Workshops and enjoyed making their dream-boards as it gave them a chance to reflect on their future (both long and short term) which they do not really get time for in the busy life of school.

    I would definitely recommend the workshops to other schools as it inspired both students and staff to give things a go and really believe that they can reach their goal and I would definitely have you back again.’
    Louise Maher, PSHE Coordinator, Head of Year 11, Perry Beeches School

Parents asking for government to change School Uniform pricing

Today, parents are asking for the UK government to revise its guidelines on school uniform so that they have more choices about where they buy school uniform. Some schools have specific agreements with some school uniform suppliers making it mandatory for parents to buy school uniforms from them. The suppliers prices are generally far more expensive than prices on the high street.

As a single parent with two children, I want to be able to buy the uniform for the price that my budget can afford and not from the shop that is stipulated by the school or government.

One parent's views on the news was that irrespective where the school uniform is bought, the quality is always sub standard,

What are your views?
