What is The Parenting Course?

The Parenting Children Course was developed in 1990 by Nicky and Sila Lee (authors of The Parenting Book) for parents and care-givers looking for practical support to strengthen their family relationships.

Over five sessions, the course will help you to:

  • Build strong foundations
  • Meet your children’s needs
  • Set clear boundaries
  • Teach healthy relationships
  • Consider your long term aim



Who is it for?


The Parenting Children Course is for parents, step-parents, prospective parents or carers of children aged 0-10 years.

The course is for every type of parenting situation including parenting on your own, step-parenting and parenting as a couple.

The Parenting Children Course is based on Christian principles but designed for all couples with or without a church background.





What can i expect?


On The Parenting Children Course, you are seated in small groups based on the age of your oldest child so that you can meet other parents and carers with children of a similar age.

Each session begins with something to eat and/or drink, giving you space to relax and chat to other parents or carers followed by a practical talk and a time for discussion in groups.

The talk is given live or on DVD and includes street interview, filmed clips of parents and children sharing their own experiences and advice from parenting experts.





How can we continue investing in our family?


After the course, parents and carers continue to put into practice what they’ve learned to help keep their family strong and healthy.
Here are some of the things we suggest to support continued investment in your relationships:
