This website presents the findings from a series of studies conducted to develop and test a Tool to Measure Parenting Self-Efficacy (TOPSE) in practice. Parenting programmes of many types, based on varying philosophies and practices have been set up in different parts of the world to support and enable parents in their role.
In the UK a range of parenting programmes are offered, which are based on skill acquisition, strengthening relationships, behaviour management and parent education and support. Although programmes may differ in the way they are delivered, the overarching aim is to help parents understand the effects of their behaviour on their children and to feel empowered and confident in their parenting roles.
In so doing they not only provide support to parents but also enable children to reach their potential.
