An informal course for those parenting 0-10 year olds, beginning Monday 15th January 2018

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, single parents and prospective parents or carers of children aged 0-10 years. 

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 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 given on a DVD and includes street interview, filmed clips of parents and children sharing their own experiences and advice from parenting experts. 

How long is each session?

Each session of the Parenting course lasts around two and a quarter hours starting at 7:45pm  This includes some time a the start for dessert and drinks.

What do we do?

The course is split over five weeks and in each session we watch a DVD which includes breaks to discuss the issues that have been raised.

Do both parents need to be there?

We understand that finding babysitters can be difficult, so its not necessary for both of you to be at the sessions.  It’s also fine for parents to alternate and come to sessions.

Does it cost?

We don’t charge people for the course, but there is a suggested donation of £3 towards the cost of refreshments.
