Patchwork Working alongside Parents and their Children PUSHCHAIR AND PRIMARY

7th December 2015

Do you ever wish you had more time to enjoy being with your children?

Is getting them ready in the morning, sometimes a bit of a nightmare?

Do you ever wonder why you think it’s only your children behaving like this?

If you have answered ‘Yes’ to any of these questions, then ‘Pushchair and Primary’ is for you. Taking part will give you the chance to think about the joys and difficulties of being a dad or mum with a small child.

Run by Patchwork Parenting, it consists of six weekly sessions. It’s absolutely free, and there will be tea and coffee and plenty of chance to talk. Nobody will tell you what to do, but your expertise as a parent will be very useful to others!

These are the topics of the six sessions:

What do children need                            Encouraging good behaviour

Encouraging your child                             Choices and Consequences

Listening to words and feelings                        Enjoying your child
