The Incredible Years

Taiwhenua programme changed our lives

“We strongly recommend this positive parenting course".

"We feel we now have the tools to cope with any anti-social behaviour our feisty little daughter can dish out".

She is a little ray of sunshine in our home. We are so grateful for this course. It gave us skills that are effective, rewarding and easy to remember.”

The Greer family were having a hard time dealing with the behaviour of their four-year-old daughter. Their family life had become difficult.

They decided to enrol in The Incredible Years, one of the parenting programmes run by Te Taiwhenua o Heretaunga.

The warmth and empathy that the Greers encountered at TToH gave them confidence they had made a good choice. And as they progressed, they learned a lot about themselves, their daughter, and some great parenting techniques.

Their whole household became calmer and happier. By the end of the course, the Greer family’s home life had been transformed.
