Free Parenting Courses in Dublin 15

The Blanchardstown Area Partnership is continuing to roll out free parenting courses across the Dublin 15 area.

We are trained to facilitate the highly successful Parent Plus Courses, which has been developed by Dr. John Sharry (Child and Family Psychotherapist, Mater CAMHS). We facilitate the Early Years course also, which is for all parents of children aged between 1 and 6 years and the Children’s Programme course, which is for parents of children aged between 7 and 12 years.

Both courses look at positive parenting techniques that support you and your child in maximising their development.

Parents will learn proven ways to:

  • help your child communicate and learn in play
  • creatively help your child learn and reach their full potential
  • manage difficult behaviours such as tantrums or aggression
  • develop a good relationship with your child and to enjoy being his / her parent

If you would like the opportunity to come together with other parents in your area, share ideas and learn new techniques in a relaxed, friendly and fun environment, then contact Pauline Managan from the Blanchardstown Area Partnership on (01) 820 9550 or send her an email for more information.
