Take 3 - A course for parents of adolescents

Overview of the Programme

The Take 3 Programme is a comprehensive evidence-based parenting programme for groups of parents of 10-18 year-olds. It is used extensively by parenting professionals throughout the UK and has been independently positively evaluated and is validated on the Government’s Commissioning Toolkit.

Take 3 has two main aims:

  • to improve relationships between young people and their families; and
  • to improve young people’s behaviour at home, at school and in the wider community.

To this end, the objectives of the course are to equip parents with skills and strategies to:

  • nurture their young people by encouraging them and listening to them;
  • provide appropriate structure and boundaries for their young people;
  • take care of themselves so that they have more energy for their job of parenting and can also model self-care to their young people.

Young people behave better when they feel understood; when they have parents who are able to set authoritative boundaries; and when their parents value themselves.
