Parentalk Course

Parenting is not an easy task and I know I need all the help I can get.  Care for the Family is a Christian organisation providing support and information to parents and about wider family life.  Here is a link to a podcast discussing what to do when your child lies.  It is aimed at those with children under 12, but provides insight into what may be happening with a child of any age. It is 15 minutes long, but is worth the time that is takes to drink a cup of coffee.

If you would be interested in taking part in a Parentalk course, do get in touch with me. Or if there are other ways that we as a church family may be able to support one another, I would love to hear from you.
