Parenting Courses

The Cluster Team alongside local partners and neighbouring Clusters organise a wide variety of evidenced based parenting programmes and support groups to promote quality parenting, support managing behaviour within the home and to support general health, wellbeing and relationships. Our publicity is sent out through schools and children’s centres well in advance of the start date of each course. Copies can be collected direct from local schools and children’s centres or you can view our most recent publicity below once finalised:

A parent who previously took part in one of our parenting programmes provided us with the following feedback:

Just when I thought life was over,
And that I had nowhere to turn,

Along came the parenting group,
Who gave me some lessons to learn.

They’ve taught me that no-one is perfect,
And that we all make mistakes,

But that living in peace and harmony,
Is all about the choices we make.

Now life in my home is much better,
No more 7 am screams and shouts,

No more locking myself in the bathroom,
No more kids running around like louts!

Now I’m not saying its fool proof,
You just have to give it a go,

And if you put in the effort,
The results they really do show.

So next time your head is done in,
And you think that you really can’t cope,

Just try out the parenting group,
Because seriously it gave me some hope.
