Parent Support Network

'Supporting Homes, Supporting Schools'

Welcome to the Online Guardians; Parent Support Network.  We have developed an interactive and engaging space for parents to visit and access a wide range of assistance from experts who have been working with families and young people for over two decades.

Our Parent Support Network is focused on early intervention and education.  We solely support primary schools for this reason.   As our children are getting earlier access to devices, and are subject to influence from the digital world, the importance of engaging with effective parenting strategies during this time are critical.  The creation of structured rules, regulations and consequences for a child is essential to their development. We provide a wealth of experience working in both the digital world, and a child’s physical world.  The recent trends associated with addictions, wellbeing and self-harm can all start at an early age with excessive and unregulated usage online or a lack of discipline and structure.
