What is it
Are you trying to be the best parent you can be – but all too often finding yourself ‘slipping back’ into the old habits you swore you would stop.
This pack of cards helps parents understand a range of fundamental parenting skills and also helps them get into action to introduce the skills into their family.
Each day you review just one card which covers a single skill or strategy with all the key points captured.
Included in the pack are:
- An Introduction Card – This card outlines the subject. It is a simple explanation of the topic and a short concise statement of how this pack will help the reader.
- An Author Card – This card outlines the author’s expertise.
- 17 Key Concept Cards – Each containing concise, simple explanations of the key concepts about the topic.
- 30 x Daily Lesson Cards – Each of the 30 cards contains one lesson in the form of an exercise, task or activity that will help embed learning.
- A Resources Card – This card lists recommended books or websites that will signpost the reader for further learning.

What our experts think
The 30 day to learn cards are a great resource for parents; our testers found that they had a huge knock on effect on their children. Parents found the cards challenging but very helpful – the tasks were very simple but took a great deal of thinking and effort as they involved a change in behaviour. For example, one parent said they had to change the way in which they spoke to their child : e.g. “Put your shoes in the shoe box,” rather than, “The shoes do not belong on the floor!”.
We really liked the way in which the cards were designed by those who have spent time studying children in great depth – some of our parents felt reassured that they were doing things right and it had a positive impact on their parenting (and their opinions of themselves as a parent). A calm and confident parent is much better placed to raise happy, contented children.
