Parenting Programs

 

Other Parenting Programs

Nobody's Perfect Parenting Program is voluntary and free of charge and is offered to parents during the critical early years of childhood, from birth to age five. Our Nobody’s Perfect Program is designed to be responsive to the needs of parents. The program is preventative and aims to build strong relationships between parent and child. The atmosphere is relaxed, allowing parents to share and learn in a supportive and supported environment.

 

Typically co-facilitated by two trained facilitators, the two hour sessions are held on Friday mornings over a period of six to eight weeks. Childcare, refreshments and resource materials are provided.

 

What do parents get out of it?

For parents, it is an opportunity to increase their knowledge and understanding of their children's health, safety and behaviour.

 

Parents gain:

  • A set of accessibly written materials dealing with relevant parenting and self-care concerns

  • An improved coping ability in the face of the challenges that come with parenting

  • An increase of self-help and mutual support between the participating parents

  • Improved confidence and self-image

  • A safe environment to discuss parenting concerns

  • Support from trained facilitators
