Parenting courses and events
Are you the parent of a teenager?
If so, you might be interested in the course Time Out for Parents – The Teenage Years. This is one of the Positive Parenting courses from Care for the Family.
Help and advice on parenting in those teenage years
- to build strong relationships,
- to enjoy family life.
As Care for the Family says: “We know that being a parent can be both rewarding and challenging. Our courses are here to support you and to help you build a strong and secure relationship. There’s something very special about meeting other mums and dads on one of our courses. … The benefits of sharing ideas and experiences with other parents can last a lifetime.”
