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 or carers of children in Reception to Year 6. The course is for every type of parenting situation including parenting on your own, step-parenting and parenting as a couple.
The Parenting Children Course is based on Christian principles but designed for all parents, with or without a church or faith background.
What can I expect?
On The Parenting Children Course you can meet other parents and carers with children of a similar age. Each session begins with refreshments (including breakfast on the first week!), giving you space to relax and chat to other parents or carers followed by a practical talk and a time for discussion in groups. Each participant will receive a course book.
A DVD talk is shared which includes street interview, filmed clips of parents and children sharing their own experiences and advice from parenting experts. There is also an opportunity to discuss parenting issues with other parents and the course facilitators.
How much does it cost?
There is no charge for The Parenting Children Course. It’s FREE!
If you book in for the course and are unable to attend, you must let the course facilitators know in advance, otherwise there will be a £5 charge. This is to ensure that valuable resources are not wasted. The course is being funded and supported by The Exchange Church which meets each week in the school.
