The programme has had a huge impact on (my child). He is reflecting more on the choices he makes and he understands how to manage his feelings.
Doing this Bounce Back course with my daughter has been one of the best things I’ve done. I was unsure at first, as I didn’t want to admit it had affected my girls so much. But I am so happy I did as it has opened my eyes and given me and my daughter the tools to move forward.
Thank you for letting me come to talk about my feelings, play games and have lots of fun. I wish we could all come again!
I have learnt a lot and feel that I am more confident as a parent and in myself generally.
Mr B noticed that as a result of Jack attending BB4K it has especially helped with his anger. If someone annoys him he has a mature attitude and approach and is able to walk away from the situation, or take a deep breath. After attending the group he received an award at school, this was for his work but also his mature attitude.
Feedback from school
During the course she became more confident and outgoing. She stood up in assembly and read out a paragraph which she hadn’t done before. Her behaviour at home improved and she became more settled.
Emily is more reflective and thoughtful than she used to be and is far more able to discuss her feelings objectively.

My relationship with Scott has strengthened and I am beginning to understand what my children’s behaviour is communicating.
