What is The Parenting Children Course?
The Parenting Children Course was developed in 1990 by Nicky and Sila Lee (authors of The Parenting Book) for parents and care-givers looking for practical support to strengthen their family relationships.
Over five sessions, the course will help you to:
- Build strong foundations
- Meet your children's needs
- Set clear boundaries
- Teach healthy relationships
- Consider your long term aim
Who is it for?
The Parenting Children Course is for parents, step-parents, prospective parents or carers of children aged 2-10 years.
The course is for every type of parenting situation including parenting on your own, step-parenting and parenting as a couple. It is based on Christian principles but designed for all couples with or without a church background.
What can I expect?
On The Parenting Children Course, you are seated in small groups based on the age of your oldest child so that you can meet other parents and carers with children of a similar age.
Each session begins with something to eat and/or drink, giving you space to relax and chat to other parents or carers followed by a practical talk and a time for discussion in groups.
The talk is delivered on a DVD and includes street interview, filmed clips of parents and children sharing their own experiences and advice from parenting experts.
