What is the 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 the course for?
This course is for any parent with children up to the age of 10. The course, while based on Christian principles, is relevant and helpful for any parent with or without a Christian faith or church background. You are welcome whatever your situation and in the past we have always had a mixture of people parenting alone and as a couple and also those with adopted children.
The course begins with dessert and is followed by a mixture of clips on DVD from parents, psychologists and other professionals, as well as children themselves. There is a theme each week to focus on and questions to discuss with each other after each section. It is a great opportunity to take some time out from our busy lives and focus in on some of the challanges we face as parents and talk them through with others.
