PS. There is no up-selling and there are no hidden costs - you learning useful stuff is our product!
What is Talent?
Has your child taken up an instrument, joined a local club or started dance lessons? People talk about talent all the time, but what does it really mean and how can we as parents recognise it?
Avoiding 'Pushy Parenting"
We all want our children to succeed and fulfil their potential, but there's a fine line between encouragement and piling on pressure.
I Think my Child is the Real Deal
You may be confident that your child has what it takes to go the whole way in their chosen field, but what would that journey look like?
Turning Talent into Performance
What is the magic formula to turn talent and potential into performance and how can we as parents encourage this?
Nerves and Perfectionism
How can we support our children to cope with the inevitable nerves and deal with negative perfectionism?
How can we as parents accommodate our child's passion but ensure that it fits in to our day to day family lifestyle?
About Eira Parry
Eira worked as a coach for British Rowing for 8 years, her remit was to find new Olympians. In this role she worked with athletes from age 13 up to 30, taking them from their very first outing in a boat, through to making it on to national teams. Many of Eira's former athletes went on to win European, World and Olympic titles.
As part of her coaching role, Eira developed relationships with athletes' families, particularly their parents. And although she was all too aware of the importance of the parents' role in a young athlete's development, as a busy coach there wasn't always the time to prioritise their needs.
And thus High Performance Parenting was born. Working with individuals, clubs, schools, governing bodies and corporate networks, HPP offers a support service for parents of young people who are passionate about a chosen field. HPP runs workshops and webinars looking at subjects such as dealing with disappointment, developing talent and much more.
Eira is passionate that the journey of a talented young person should be positive and offer opportunities for growth and learning, for children and parents alike.
