Parenting Support

Parenting Programmes

We run parenting programmes, which may include topics such as:

  • Promoting positive parenting
  • Coping with / managing children’s behaviour
  • Developing routines
  • Potty training
  • Sleeping problems
  • Other common parenting issues

One-to-One and Group Sessions

As well as the group sessions, you are welcome to talk to Flying Start staff on a one-to-one basis in order to discuss any aspect of parenting.  If you want they can be arranged as part of a community group or in your own home.
