21st Century Parent

Have you just become, or are you thinking about becoming a parent? Do you need help dealing with difficult teenage problems? Does just thinking about having to be responsible for the upbringing of another human being scare you? Or are you just interested in brushing up on your current parenting skills? The 21st Century Parenting course deals with all these issues and more, as well as giving parents an opportunity to meet together in a relaxed environment to share and discuss their parenting knowledge, experiences and techniques, allowing them to learn from each other as well as from the course material.

The 21st Century Parent parenting course is a free course run by the church using material created by the ‘Care for the Family’ organisation. Church members do not lecture parents on how to raise their children – but it is rather a set of short video sessions created by experts in family life. Following the video sessions parents will have the opportunity to learn from each other as to the best way to deal with different situations.


The 21st Century Parenting Course is run on request and is not currently scheduled. If you would like to register your interest please contact us here, we are more than happy to help.
