DONEGAL PARENTING HUB ANNOUNCE LIST OF PROGRAMMES

first_imgThe Parent Hub, Donegal has announced the rollout of over 20 Parenting Programmes across the county for the 2015/2016 period to coincide with the academic year. The Parent Hub is keen to promote parenting education as a support that all parents should have access to no matter where they live in Donegal.This year, in addition to the Parents Plus Children’s Programme being made available, there will also be a number of Parents Plus Early Years Programmes and a small number of Parents Plus Adolescent Programmes. Programmes will be available in various locations throughout the county including Inishowen, Letterkenny, Lifford, Raphoe, Stranorlar, Milford, Killybegs, Donegal Town, Dungloe, Pettigo, Falcarragh, Gweedore and Ballyshannon.The Parents’ Plus Programmes are evidenced based programmes that focus on parenting skills that parents have found to be effective. The Programmes are free to parents with a small contribution towards the cost of the Parent’s Manual. The Programmes are being facilitated through the collaboration of Community Services, HSE and Tusla Child and Family Services.They are open to all parents in the community and in addition to focusing on parenting issues the groups also provide parents with a good social network. Parents are given the opportunity to come together and look at the issues they are facing in a relaxed and friendly environment over an eight week period with sessions lasting two hours per week.The Parents Plus Early Years Programme draws on well-researched ideas about child development and parent-child communication. It is ideal for parents who want to maximise their children’s learning, language and social development, as well as reduce behaviour problems, while ensuring their children grow up happy and emotionally secure. The programme is suitable both for children within the normal range of development as well as children with special needs such as ADHD, speech and language and other development difficulties. It is aimed at parents of children aged 1-5 years. The Parents Plus Children’s Programme targets the needs of primary school children (5-12 years), showing parents how to communicate positively with children, illustrating ways to encourage good social skills as well as well-researched methods to tackle behaviour problems. The aim of the course is to help parents not only solve discipline and other childhood problems, but also for parents to develop closer and more satisfying relationships with their children.The Adolescent’s Programme considers how parents can connect with and build good relationships with their teenage children, while also being firm and influential in their lives. Through the use of a DVD the programme illustrates well-researched principles of effective communication and conflict resolution which parents can use with their teenagers, with the aim of helping them grow into responsible young adults.A programme developed especially for separated parents will also be made available in different locations as the need arises. The Parents Plus Parenting When Separated Programme is a six week course that highlights practical steps parents can take to help their children cope and thrive as well as coping successfully themselves.For further information on any of these programmes please contact Nicola Harvey on 074 9123632/9123783 or nicolac.harvey@tusla.ie.
