The problem with parenting is that normally by the time we get the hang of it – we’re redundant! Parenting is a mixture of highs and lows … and everything in between. It can bring some of life’s biggest joys, but also its greatest challenges. For most of us, a bit of encouragement and a reminder that we’re not alone can make a real difference.
Parentalk – The Primary Years looks at the topics that affect just about every family. As you go through each session you will have the chance to talk to other parents in your group about the day-to-day challenges that you face, as well as share the things that are going well.
Presented by Rob Parsons and Katharine Hill, and with guest contributions from Diane Louise Jordan, Mark Chester from Who Let the Dads Out?, author Sarah Abell, and Paediatrician Dr. Kunle Ayonrinde, the DVD sessions feature presenter introduction and conclusions, family interviews, street vox-pops, humorous short dramas, real-life parenting case studies, and presenter discussions.
Parentalk – The Teenage Years is all about helping mums and dads do the best job they can as they navigate these years with their teenager. It gives parents the opportunity to share their own experiences, learn from each other, and explore some essential parenting principles.
It is suitable for parents from all different backgrounds and family structures. DVD sessions are presented by Rob Parsons OBE and Katharine Hill, joined by special guests, including broadcaster Carrie Grant, educational psychologist Dave Lumsdon and youth specialist Rachel Gardner.
