Parenting Children Course starts January 2020
Being a parent is a great privilege but also a great challenge, and often we’re expected to master it without any support or training.
The truth is, most of us feel about ready to start parenting by the time our last one has flown the nest.
Jackie and I are parents of Nathan 29 and Amy 26, and we would totally recommend these 5 session Parenting Courses. Whether you feel all is going well or not, this course will be a great benefit. (no quibble money back guarantee 😉
We’re running the courses at the New St James Centre, Birdham.
The course for parenting the early years up to the end of primary is run on 5 consecutive Monday evenings 7.30 – 9.30pm starting on 13th January.
The courses only costs £10 for the 5 sessions !!
