It’s 10 years since the TV show ‘Supernanny’ presented by Jo Frost hit our TV screens. Since then many thousands more children have been born and parents are as concerned as ever about how to bring them up. Supernanny helped parents turn round seemingly irreconcilable conflict in the families she coached. Often the changes made were subtle yet had profound impact. Supernanny is not available to help every family, and not every family is as dysfunctional as those featured in the show. Yet there are few parents who don’t find themselves from time to time feeling alone and lacking confidence in their role as parents.
The Time Out For Parents range of courses have been developed over a series of years to enable parents learn simple, practical skills targeted at their children’s age group. This is done in the company of other parents and a key feature of the course is that as everyone shares together we all grow in confidence in our parenting role. The course is presented by qualified facilitators who have completed a rigorous training programme and been awarded a diploma accrediting their competency.
Time Out for Parents – Primary Years will be starting on Thursday 11th September at 7:30pm in Life Church Centre. This covers topics including:
- What being a parent’s really like
- Children’s needs
- Feelings and listening
- Boundaries and parenting styles
- Keeping safe
- Building strong families
More details, including a video trailer and course registration can be found on our website:
We look forward to you joining us.
