What can I expect from this course?

A friendly welcome and a great atmosphere that is open, encouraging and fun.
Practical talks that are informative and fun on DVD. They Include filmed clips of parents and children sharing their own experiences, street interviews and advice from parenting experts.
Small groups based on the age of your older child so that you can meet other parents and carers who have lots in common with you.
Time to discuss the challenges you are facing and how to establish long-term strategies for your own family.
