A Coffee Evening for Parents interested in attending the Parent Plus Community Course will be held in Balbriggan on Monday 1st October from 6-8pm. Here parents will be given detailed information about the course.
The Parents Plus Community Course is for all parents and looks at positive parenting techniques that support parents and their child in maximizing development. The programme is well established and has scientific evidence base that shows significant reductions in parental stress and increased positive behaviour among children.
Parents will learn proven ways to help your child to communicate and learn in play, creatively help your child learn and reach their full potential, manage difficult behaviour such as tantrums or aggression and develop a good relationship with your child and to enjoy being his/her parent.
The Positive Parenting Training for Early Years is open to parents from all backgrounds and all walks of life whose children attend preschool and the junior cycle of national schools (junior and senior infants). Where possible we recommend that both parents attend the courses as we have found this helps this most but we understand that in a lot of cases this is not possible and encourage at least one parent to attend. If you are a single-parent please feel free to bring along a friend or family member.
Any interested parents can contact Katherine or Helena for more details on 01 8020484.
