Step by Step Parenting

 

  • Does your day seem full of decisions and countless difficult choices that leave you struggling to cope?
  • Do you find yourself exhausted, with your patience reaching it's limit?
  • Does parenting no longer seem a joy?
  • Has all the fun and laughter disappeared from your family life?

 

Then come and join us for coffee, chocolate biscuits and relaxed, friendly chat whilst finding out about a whole range of great strategies, realistic ideas and useful skills to help support, encourage and guide you and your children through your daily life together.

Starting on Monday 3rd October 2016, the course runs for 7 weeks and is FREE to all.

Running from 1:15pm to 3pm, it fits in perfectly with the end of the school day.

There is also a FREE creche run by school staff members to entertain your little ones.
