Parenting group for all parents - Understanding your child

Understanding your Child logo

For parents and carers of children aged to 2 to 16 years.

The Understanding your Child group offers parents and carers the opportunity to learn more about their parenting, how children develop and begin to understand their behaviour.

Evaluation of previous groups has shown they have helped to reduce parental anxiety, enhance the parent/child relationship, and improve their child’s behaviour.

Issues explored include:

  • having fun together
  • development needs
  • behaviour difficulties
  • communication
  • parenting styles
  • sleep

The group is led by two trained facilitators, who have a wide range of experience in working with children and families.

Groups are held during each school term, running for 2 hours, once a week, for 10 weeks and are completely free of charge.

Funding for childcare may be available for children requiring care whilst you attend the group.

To find out what groups are scheduled, please contact the parenting team via providing your name and address.
