An insight into the role of parenting workers as part of the Youth Offending Service. We follow parenting development officer, Nicky Xandora, as she visits a family she once worked with. The mother was finding it difficult to cope with her daughter’s anti-social behaviour, and had one-to-one parenting sessions with Nicky, as well as some group parenting meetings. We see a group parenting session in action and find out more about its purpose and outcomes.
The class could discuss: "How can difficulties in a family increase the risk of offending behaviour? What do parenting workers do? What has changed for the family featured in the clip?"
