What is The Parenting Children Course?
The Parenting Children Course is for any parents, step-parents, prospective parents or carers of children aged 0 – 10 years.
Why do the course?
- Children do not arrive with an instruction manual
- No role we undertake is more important than parenting
Family life is under great pressure today and parents face bewildering choices about how to parent effectively. Discovering we are not alone in the challenges we face and picking up ideas from other parents can make a huge difference. We can all learn how to make even the happiest family better.
Over five weekly sessions you will discover practical tools to help you:
- Build a strong family, centred on love
- Meet your children’s needs
- Set effective boundaries
- Teach healthy relationships
- Pass on the values you hold to be important
There are small groups based on the age of your oldest child so that you can meet other parents/caregivers who have lots in common with you. Every part of the course is optional, including contributing to the small group discussion.
