Parenting can be challenging, but you’re not alone

If you’re struggling with the challenges of parenting or want to enhance your parenting skills, participating in a parenting program can help.

We provide group work and one-on-one education programs for parents, providing opportunities to:

  • learn methods for dealing with difficult behaviours in children
  • build confidence in parenting
  • develop and consolidate skills in listening to children
  • learn how to teach discipline and stop children from fighting
  • discover that parenting can be enjoyable
