What is Confident Parenting?

The Confident Parenting Programme at Families in Action is founded on the premise that:

  • Parents are doing their best
  • There is no perfect parenting
  • Each parent is an expert on his/her own child

During the programme professional expertise will be offered as useful knowledge to add to the parental tool-kit and not as advice imposed from an outsider. This course will help parents to:

  • Establish their own style of parenting
  • Understand their children’s behaviour
  • Find alternative methods of discipline
  • Communicate better with children and spouse
  • Take some of the stress out of parenting
  • Reflect on how they are relating to their children and caring for themselves
  • Experiment with new skills, which can be applied both within family and working relationships
