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. The Parenting Children Course aims to equip parents and carers of children with long-term strategies and practical tools to build a healthy family life.

WHO IS THE PARENTING CHILDREN COURSE FOR?

This course is for any parent with children in primary education. The course, while based on Christian principles, is relevant and helpful for any parent with or without a Christian faith or church background. The course is for any parent or caregivers of children, whether they consider themselves to have strong parenting skills or are struggling, and whether they are expecting their first child, are a single parent or a step-parent. Guests can come alone or as a couple. The practical tools of the course are applicable to everyone who has responsibility for a child or children up to 11 years old.


WHAT DOES THE PARENTING CHILDREN COURSE COVER?

Topics covered include:
• Laying strong foundations
• Love in action
• Setting boundaries and managing behaviour
• Building character
• Growing a confident child

The course will be fun and informal, with drinks and snacks, a talk and opportunities for discussion in small groups. Please note that childcare is not provided, but if you would like us to help arrange baby-sitters, just ask us!.

“I’m feeling much more positive, more determined to have fun as a parent.”
”I feel much encouraged and inspired by ideas for family time and have realised the importance of fun and security and of family life itself.’”
