Parenting Programmes (5-18 years)

Our 0-19 years Family Centres provide 2 programmes designed for parents/carers of children who are 5-18 years.

As children go through multiple development stages throughout this period these courses offer the opportunity for parents to greater understand these changes and how they can affect behaviour and relationships.

Family Links: The Parenting Puzzle: This is a 10 week programme that focuses on parenting support for parents/carers of children of the age 5-12 years.  Topics include behavioural strategies, self-esteem and praise, child development and problem solving.
