One Day Parenting Class / Workshop:
“It has made a huge difference to our house . Thank you so much for a very informative, insightful and productive day”
This is a one day parenting class designed by Dr Tony Humphreys who trained me, Sheila O’Malley to deliver the programme. It will provide you with parenting tips and skills to parent children more effectively. Parenting is the hardest job you’ll ever do and comes with no training or support.
The day gives you an opportunity to come with your questions and get them answered. The programme is not set as it is for a small number (usually less than ten) and the material is wrapped around your needs.Click for parents feedback
