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 the course for?
The Parenting Children Course is for parents, step-parents, 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. It is based on Christian principles but designed for anyone with or without a church background.
Why do the course?
- Children do not arrive with an instruction manual!
- No role we undertake is more important than parenting
Family life is under great pressure today and parents face bewildering choices about how to parent effectively. Discovering we are not alone in the challenges we face and picking up ideas from other parents can make a huge difference. We can all learn how to make even the happiest family better.
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 DVD and a time for discussion in groups. The talk is on DVD and includes street interview, filmed clips of parents and children sharing their own experiences and advice from parenting experts.
If you are able to come with the person you are co-parenting with that is particularly helpful.
