Quotes from parents that completed the First Steps’ School-Age Incredible Years Parenting Group:
A wonderful course. I feel so much more confident in my parenting abilities and I feel I have more options at my disposal. This course would be fantastic for every parent. The facilitators were both knowledgeable and non-judgemental, and support of others members of the group was invaluable.
I thoroughly enjoyed this course….it’s given me a great deal of confidence and has improved my family life immensely. I have learnt so many different things on how to be a better parent and now feel more confident on how to handle my child and to cope in general.
