It takes a village to raise a child is an African proverb that means that an entire community of people must interact with children for those children to experience and grow in a safe and healthy environment. The villagers look out for the children. With migration the concept of a village or even family was lost. MFS seeks to restore that concept in providing support to parents- not only to help them through the joys and challenges of being a parent, but to equip them in all aspect of parenting including the legal framework in the United Kingdom

Advanced communication skills are necessary for parents to forge strong bonds and build trust with children, to encourage cooperation and to build confidence. We show parents easy techniques for talking to children to encourage them to listen, cooperate and be motivated. We distinguish ways of acknowledging children’s good behaviour so that what we say is meaningful, credible and actually taken on board by children, so that it is really effective in building strong self-esteem and encouraging good behaviours. We also look at listening skills which encourage children to talk to us and emotion coaching skills which help children learn to identify, understand and manage their emotions. Emotionally literate children form better relationships and achieve
better academic outcomes at school and it’s much easier to live with someone who knows how to deal well with their feelings.
