Parenting Groups in 2019

Parenting Groups can help you build a positive relationship with your child, understand what motivates their behaviour and improve parent-child communication. We will commence another round of parenting groups in Term 2, may- June 2019.
All our groups are free of charge, please RSVP to 02 66212489.

Thursdays 31 October - November 14 from 10am - 12.30 pm.

The No Scaredy Cats workshop is based on three underlying perspectives:
*By having an understanding of how anxiety develops, parents can counter its progress.
*Parents can take a preventative role in the development of anxiety problems.
*There are practical steps parents can take to build resilience.

Families Plus
Looking after your family is a big job.  At Family Support Network we recognise that for parents raising children and managing multiple responsibilities is often a juggle.   In recognition of this Family Support Network is offering a series of informative, educative and practical skills sessions to help parents and carers balance the many challenges of raising children and providing for their family.

Sessions will include tips and support for managing the family budget, returning to education and work, maintaining work life  balance,  family activities, getting to know the resources of your local community, building resilience and many other practical and informative topics. Helen would love to hear your ideas for topics that could be added to the program, ph 02 66212489 extension 109.


Please join our mailing list so we can email you about upcoming events including groups in Nimbin and other locations.

We offer a range of Parenting Groups each school term, including Triple P, 123 Magic, Bringing Up Great Kids and Tuning In To Kids. You can download our 470kB  Summary_Of_Parenting_Groups.pdf here.

What parents are saying about our Parenting Groups:

“I have learned how to listen to my children. I have made different choices as a Dad.
Counting and time out are working well.”

“We got positive feedback and validation about our parenting and will continue working with what we have learned.”
