After their successful Alpha Course, Uniting Church in the City (UCIC) is now turning its focus to parenting. The Perth congregation is running two new parenting courses, Parenting Children and Parenting Teenagers. The ten week courses are free for anyone who is seeking advice on this popular topic.
The Parenting Children course is aimed at parents or carers with children up to ten years old and will focus on a range of topics such as building a strong family, meeting children’s needs, setting boundaries, healthy relationships and long term aims.
The Parenting Teenagers course is aimed at parents or cares with kids aged ten to 18, or for those with younger children who want to prepare for the teenage years. Topics include keeping the end in mind, meeting needs, setting boundaries, developing emotional health and helping teenagers make good choices.
Kim Stanfield is co-ordinating the course, and invites all interested parents and caregivers to join in and access some extra support and encouragement for what can be a challenging, enjoyable and rewarding journey.
“We can all learn how to make even the happiest family better,” Kim said.
Classes will be held on Tuesdays from 30 April to 2 July, 12noon to 1.00pm at Uniting Church in the City, Wesley Perth, on the corner of William and Hay Sts.
