Building and nurturing families can seem a daunting task, but it’s not mission impossible. This six-week course is designed for families with children of all ages. Inclusion is the key, and any adult involved in the parenting process is invited to come with children over 10 years of age. Parents and children will learn about cooperation, relating respectfully and solving problems.

For a boy, a close relationship with his father is like gold. Boys whose dads are involved with them from a young age do better in lots of ways - academically, emotionally and socially. Well-fathered boys show the positive effects years later with an improved capacity for empathy and the health of their social relationships. This one night session is for dads with sons under the age of 12 years.

Find out how to build a rewarding father-daughter relationship. As the primary male role model in a girl’s life, Dads play an important role in the development of their self-concept and self esteem. This can often affect how they relate to others, particularly to boys and men.

For teenage girls, a father’s support and love are extremely important. This workshop helps Dads understand the changes occurring in their teenage daughters and shows ways to help them navigate this difficult time and encourage them to make good choices.

Raising teenage boys can be challenging but there can also be exceptional times of fun and closeness. This is an interactive, positive workshop for men who are raising or helping to raise teenage boys.

Every parent wants to do the best for their child but can often feel overwhelmed. After many decades of research it has been found that one of the most useful skills and awareness a parent can give is emotional intelligence. This means helping their child to recognise what they are feeling and why.

It’s important for fathers to distinguish between their parenting role and their relationship break-up. This workshop held in a male-friendly environment, looks at the experience of Dads after separation, how children can react to separation and proactive ways to keep in touch with your child.

Couples with children from previous relationships may need strategies on communication, agreement on discipline, and handling competing demands. How about ensuring time just for each other? That matters too. This six week course will provide strategies to assist parents in a step family.
