Further information

Child to parent violence, oppositional, controlling, manipulative or defiant behaviour are not what we signed up for when our children came into our lives. However, the reality is that many of us live with these challenges, often daily, leaving us feeling helpless, bullied, depressed, overwhelmed and hopeless.

Our free annual Adopt South West adopter conference is 9:30am to 4pm on Tuesday 4 October 2022

This conference will teach some principles of parenting with Non-Violent Resistance (NVR), a simple and empowering method for families to connect with children of any age to reduce or eradicate challenging behaviour. Gill Tree share stories from her own life and the families she works with and provides a mix of strategies to help you.
