Confident Parenting Programme

The Breath of Fresh Air Workshop

Would you like to learn more about how you can help your child be the confident, resilient person you would like them to be?

In this carefully structured, confident parenting programme, ‘Breath of Fresh Air’, you will learn skills to help both yourself and your child:

  • Develop better communication with one another father-and-son-2695669_1920
  • Build self-esteem and confidence
  • Manage and adapt to change
  • Speak more easily about feelings
  • Become more assertive and take responsibility
  • Understand how to use self-help tools and techniques for yourself and your child for lifelong well being



We are two helping professionals with our own long personal experience as mothers and grandmother. We learned the hard way, and see the benefits of sharing much simpler and effective ways of relating with your children.

We have combined our expertise to offer this programme to parents and care givers in small, welcoming groups.We believe that all you will gain by attending this programme that really is a ‘Breath of Fresh Air’!

A little more about us:

Di Smart: Nothing is more important in our lives (certainly in my opinion) than the relationship we have with our children as ‘they are our tomorrow’!DSC_0026

I love the opportunity of talking and supporting parents, and care givers, to explore what skills they already have and how they can build on these by learning new ways of thinking and communicating.  I use my experience and training, gained whilst working in children’s services and in mental health services as a qualified social worker to now promote positive relationship building for parents and children alike.



Caroline Rolling: I love working with parents and care givers, sharing evidence-based ways that enable them to be calmer, more resilient adults, tools they can share with their children, supporting them as they develop and grow.

As a younger mother, I would have loved then to have the skills I later learned as a Youth Development Worker and Emotional Resilience Coach and Trainer, I have been privileged to work with people of all ages and walks of life in Shropshire, and as far afield as Bosnia & Herzegovina.  I use those same skills now for myself and family. Its never too late to learn how to be the parent you’d like to be.
