WHAT IS A PARENT RESOURCE GROUP/SKILL BUILDING GROUP?

Build support around the work you do as a parent, reduce your stress level, build connection in your family life and support for yourself.  Parenting is challenging at the best of times. There is always lots of advice, but in short supply is a safe, non-judgmental place to:

  • make sense of that advice and plan for our parenting;
  • unload when things get tough;
  • hear that we are not alone;
  • be appreciated for how hard we try;
  • share successes and happy moments; and
  • reflect on our own stories and how these influence our parenting.

WHAT HAPPENS IN A PARENTING BY CONNECTION RESOURCE GROUP?

  • learn about how Parenting by Connection can work in your family;
  • share experiences of using the Listening Tools at home;
  • have questions answered;
  • each parent is listened to in turn by the group, in a confidential environment, without comment, judgement or advice.

WHAT WILL I GET FROM BEING IN THE GROUP?

Being part of a Resource Group can help you develop a support network which you can use to help solve your parenting challenges. Getting a chance to be listened to in this way can often turn your day around, and over time, improves your capacity to connect with your children, and your flexibility in responding to their difficulties.

WHO CAN ATTEND? These groups are open to parents of  children aged 0-12.  It is preferable if you have some familiarity with the Parenting by Connection approach. For a good general introduction to Parenting by Connection, please see our free resources and materials.  For a more in-depth introduction, we can highly recommend the Short Online Parenting Courses on common parenting topics.  If you are not sure, please contact Madeleine to discuss.

WHAT HAVE OTHER PARENTS SAID ABOUT THESE GROUPS?

“The adult-adult listening time has been great because I normally don’t have anyone to offload to.”

“I’ve found the listening time helpful as it is interesting to listen to where others are at and it’s a great opportunity to get things off your chest.”

“I’ve been surprised at how useful it has been just to have a chance to talk through what is going on. Things seem to become clearer. I know that no-one is going to judge me, or give me advice I don’t need.”
