We have been receiving a lot of feedback from the community about the need for a parenting course. In response to this, we ran a brand new program here this term: Building Awesome Whānau, with a focus on raising 0-12 year olds. This six week course is very practical and full of helpful ideas and strategies. It was attended by a great mix of parents, grandparents foster parents and caregivers.
This was a pilot for us, but with such a successful program, and overwhelmingly positive feedback from the community, we will look to run this again in 2017 (please call the centre to register your interest for this course). Those who attended have told us what a difference the ideas and practices have made in their family already, and that they are seeing breakthrough in challenging behaviours. Thankyou to our amazing faciliators Carol and Dee from The Parenting Place for bringing the course to life and imparting so many practical insights and ideas.
