Craven's mums and dads get tips on parenting

[Thursady 27 April 2006]

MUMS and dads in Skipton are being offered the chance to improve their parenting skills from today.

Building on the success of an earlier event held in Cracoe, parents of pre-school age and primary school children across Craven are being offered the chance to learn some extra tips and techniques to make the job of being a parent that bit easier.

It has been organised by Sue Coombs, a health visitor at Grassington Medical Centre, in conjunction with the Community Education Service and will take place at the Youth and Community Centre on Otley Street.

The course will include a wide range of parenting issues, such as:

  • Communication in the family
  • Difficult behaviour
  • Helping with school work
  • Health issues
  • Dealing with stress

Sue Coombs commented: "Being a parent is very rewarding but can also be one of the most difficult challenges people face. Everyone's circumstances are slightly different and sometimes it can seem there is nowhere to turn for practical advice.

"These programmes are intended to give some helpful tips and techniques in a supportive environment."

All the sessions take place at the Youth and Community Centre, and child care will be available. The six week programme runs from 12.45pm to 2.45pm, with weekly sessions at the same time.
