Parentchannel.tv is an online service designed to support and encourage parents and carers of children aged 0-19, with a collection of videos addressing day-to-day questions and concerns spanning wellbeing, behaviour and learning.
Parenting UK is pleased to announce that we have extended our video offer on Parentchannel.tv (www.parentchannel.tv) to include videos for parents with children under 5, providing advice and support focussing on improving the parent–child relationship and home learning environment in the critical early years.
There are now 25 new videos for parents of babies and toddlers, covering a range of topics such as forming a relationship with your new baby, social and emotional development, speech and learning, tantrums, safety in the home, and much more.
The new videos, funded by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, with additional support from DBDA, The Infant & Toddler Forum and Ladybird Books, can parents to understand child development, offering a broad range of parenting advice.
These videos are designed to help parents to understand the importance of playing and engaging in simple learning activities at home with their children as part of normal daily life, helping children overcome risk factors such as poverty and class that are linked to underachievement and a continued cycle of disadvantage. By providing accessible high-quality videos featuring both expert advice and empathy from other parents, with signposting to further advice where needed, we can help to ensure all parents have the knowledge and skills necessary to give their children the best start in life.
Pamela Park, Parenting UK’s Director of Business Development says, “We are delighted to be able to extend our videos to cover the whole age range, providing comprehensive advice for parents that is easily accessible. We strongly believe in the importance of parents understanding how crucial the first few years really are. Our videos offer tips and advice to help parents give their children the best start in life.”
Parentchannel.tv features a collection of short and engaging parenting support videos with links to existing services for further information, advice and support where needed. In producing these videos we have engaged experts and parents every step of the way.
