Positive Parenting Programme

Women’s Work offers 4 different parenting programmes accredited by Care for the Family.  The courses cover three different age groups:

  • The Early Years (0-5 years) 
  • The Primary Years (6-10 years)
  • The Teenage Years (10-18 years)

As well as How to Handle Anger in the Family.

The content of the courses can vary and they last between 4 and 7 sessions.  The aim is to help the parents raise children into adults that can cope with the outside world.  The programmes are based on common sense and are user friendly, giving practical skills and tools. We try to run at least 1 of each programme every year. They value the personal experiences that parents bring along with them and help with general parenting issues and situations where there might be a risk of behaviour or emotional difficulties.  The How to Handle Anger in the Family course teaches parents to recognise their own triggers and learn strategies to deal with them, passing on what they have learnt to their children.  

The courses provide an understanding of the needs of the children and help the parents develop confidence in themselves and their parenting skills to build strong, healthy family relationships.

Women’s Work have completely changed my life. The support is just amazing and the staff really do their job well, but professional, yet never patronise us

After doing Healthy relationships, I have better knowledge about abusive relationships and can now recognise the red warning flags in the early stages. I have learnt to love myself, and will not allow anyone to control or abuse me anymore
