What is ParenTalk?

ParenTalk is an 8 week discussion-based series with other parents and carers in a friendly, safe, relaxed atmosphere. We share experiences and help one another with everything that it means to be a parent.Subjects covered are:

  • accepting yourself
  • love without strings
  • communication
  • saying what you mean and meaning what you say
  • defending the boundaries
  • choosing your battles
  • being a parent with elastic
  • building up happy memories

Feedback from previous courses

  • “I now try not to be too hard on myself.”
  • “I have learnt to be patient with my kids.”
  • “I am more aware of directly communicating with my child, I understand more how he feels and my child’s behaviour has improved. I used to worry I wasn’t the best; I am now more relaxed and realise that every parent goes through the same things.”

We all need a little help at times as parents and carers, so come along to ParenTalk and we can share and learn together. For additional information, please contact us.
