Parents, carers and parents-to-be can now access innovative online courses about children for free.

The course Understanding Your Child has been put together by the Solihull Approach – established 20 years ago by psychologists, health visitors and other health professionals. It will deal with pregnancy, brain development, play, styles of parenting, sleep, temper tantrums, and understanding the teenage brain.
