The Parenting Puzzle
This is a 4 or 10-week Parenting courses run regularly throughout the year depending on demand.
We all want family life to be fun, happy and loving but at various times things can get in the way of this and it can be hard to see a way to get back on track and re-discover the fun and comfort of family life. For most of us it easier to make changes when we are able to share ideas and have the support of others. In these sessions together with a small group of other parents and two trained facilitators, you will work your way through the Parenting Puzzle course material together hopefully with many laughs along the way. Please call the centre for more information, to put your name down for a course and to find out when the next course will be running.
Book in advance
