Parenting courses

Raising a family is one of the most challenging things any of us will ever do. Children need love, attention, patience, meals, clothes, guidance and boundaries - often all before 8.30 in the morning!

Sometimes as parents we have our own issues to deal with which can make the challenges even greater. It's not surprising that sometimes many of us find it hard to cope.

Parenting programmes will provide you with the opportunities to learn and improve your parenting skills, helping you understand your children's needs and helping you cope with present and future difficulties.

They also provide you with a chance to meet and share experiences with other parents and make new friends.
