Parenting centres provide intensive support for a range of parenting issues including post natal depression, breastfeeding and relationship concerns which relate to early childhood (0-5 years).
A parenting centre is a place where parents of 0 - 5 year olds can go for help and advice with:
- breastfeeding / feeding issues
- sleep problems
- post natal depression
- behaviour management
- child / parent communication
- self esteem
- step families
- sibling rivalry
- general difficulties that relate to parenting
These are issues or situations which frequently arise in the normal process of parenting and can affect all members of the family.
Parents have the opportunity to look at their lives, learn and build on life skills to enable them to move on. Sessions are provided on an individual or group basis - group sessions may include parenting, post natal depression, breastfeeding/feeding.
