I found the course really helpful and it gave me different views on parenting skills. it also taught me ways to entertain the kids without spending money. Overall I was really impressed with the course and I would recommend it to others

Response from Sally Penn, District Manager (Bassetlaw), Children's Centres, County Health Partnerships

Being a parent is rarely easy, it doesn't come with an instruction manual and yet we are expected to know what to do from the start. If only it was that easy! But on a positive note, others have already practiced so we are able to learn what works best, this is where the parenting programmes come in. Providing us as parents with the knowledge and techniques of how to manage difficult behaviour and how to increase the behaviours we want to see.

Play is a fabulous way to get to know your children, bond with them and have a firm foundation for relationships as they get older. Its not only fun for the child but also for the adult and I agree... laughter, smiles and hugs don't need to cost a penny.

Thank you for your feedback
