Parenting Children

Ruah Counselling Centre

Parenting Children Course | 6 Weeks 

This course is designed to help parents, parents-to-be and carers of 0 to 10-year-olds equip their children for life.

Over the duration of this course, we look at:

  • Building Strong Foundations
  • Meeting our Children's Needs
  • Setting Boundaries
  • Teaching Healthy Relationships
  • Long-Term Goals

Please note that this course does not provide a focus on the specific needs of any special interest group such as single parents, adoptive parents or individuals sharing custody. Instead, it presents universal issues, challenges and situations that we all encounter as parents, regardless of our individual situations.

Every parent could benefit from taking this course.
