Parental Wellbeing Hub
Being a parent is the most rewarding and also the most challenging job that there is. It is the most important position you can hold, but it has no job description or downloadable rule book to which to refer in a time of question, curiosity or crisis.
“There’s no way to be a perfect parent and a million ways to be a good one.” - Jill Churchill
At King's High School, we value working alongside parents in supporting our students in all facets of life. No one has all the answers all of the time, and we all need to feel able to reach out to ask for guidance and help when it's needed. For this reason, we have compiled these trusted resources to support you in feeling informed, supported and empowered in the parenting journey and all the challenges that come along with it.
Here you will find: spaces of support; carefully selected resources to help, guide and inform you and ideas to guide you in the parenting journey.
