Beating the behaviour blues

From “horrendous” beginnings came a happy ending for the Carley family. Danielle was not only struggling with son Joey’s behaviour, but she was also finding it hard to bond with him.

"My house is very chaotic"

With five children (three of them with a learning or development disability) Amanda Bates was constantly catering for several needs at once. Stepping Stones gave her the tools she needed to make family life calmer than it’s ever been. And now her kids are thriving!

"We can finally go out as a family"

Pam feared for her son’s safety. Carolyn’s family couldn’t go anywhere together. But since doing Stepping Stones Triple P, two Brisbane mothers say their lives are completely different. And they couldn’t be happier.

Feeling like herself again

Looking after a child with extra needs meant that Fern Turner felt like she’d lost her identity. After Stepping Stones, her son’s behaviour and the family’s ability to run a smooth daily routine improved so much, Fern’s been able to regain her confidence and find fulfilling work outside the home.

Team work takes the stress out of parenting

For many parents, especially when dealing with the challenges of parenting a child with a disability, there can be arguments and resentment about whose way is best. But working as a team is a lot less stressful and can make your parenting skills and relationship stronger at the same time.
