We have just celebrated with some awesome parents – finishing a “Tweens and Teens” Toolbox Parenting Group a week ago. We had 14 awesome parents attend and had some great discussions on the challenges of parenting, learned about keeping our kids safer in cyberspace and around alcohol, chatted about how to have good conversations with our teens and focused on how to build good relationships with them. There was lots of laughter and jokes and a certificate at the end. It was a good time.
Thanks to the Parenting Place for partnering with us in offering this Toolbox parenting group. It is a 6 week course to discover new ideas and strategies to add to your parenting toolbox. Grow in confidence in what you already know and do, and add some in some strategies.
In Term 3 our own Karla Guerin will be offering a “Middle Years” Parenting Course beginning in Week 2 of Term 3. This is a 6 week parenting group with a focus on parenting children of 6 – 12 years. Phone her on 027 342 2440 for more information.
