Christ Church Heiloo Parenting Children Course (0-12 years)
Why do the course? Family life is under great pressure today and parents face bewildering choices about how to parent effectively. Children do not arrive with an instruction manual and no role we undertake is more important than parenting. Discovering we are not alone in the challenges we face and picking up ideas from other parents can make a huge difference. We can all learn how to make even the happiest family better.
All parents, step-parents, prospective parents and carers are welcome to attend. While the course is based on Christian principles, it is designed for parents with or without a Christian faith.

Lastly, a reaction from 2 previous participants of the Parenting Children Course: “We went into the course with an open mind and as with most parents a few areas we were very keen to discuss. The content and the way that the leaders of the program approach each subject is very good. There is a lot of input from parents who have also completed the course and plenty of humour. The time to discuss and share allows you to think of ways to put the content into action and to identify with other parents with similar aged children. We are not a Christian couple, and this is not necessary as the material and the presenters are helping you better understand your children rather than any personal belief aspect of parenthood. In addition it was nice to see people in different situations, for example younger parents, older parents and single parents. Highly recommended for any parent wanting to have additional ideas and encouragement in bringing up their children.” Mike and Izaskun Watts, parents at The European School, Bergen.
