Parenting programs

Parenting has never been easy, but it doesn’t need to be impossible.

You can learn what’s worked for others and use it to help both you and your kids to grow together. The below parenting programs have been developed to help with the different stages of your child’s growth.

These courses provide the skills necessary to encourage good behaviour and provide discipline without fighting.

The presenters for these programs have completed the Parentshop’s practitioner training.
