Parenting Course

Please note that we have changed the course start and finish time to 7:00pm–9:00pm to make it easier for more parents to attend.

Recognising the important role parents have in raising their children, St Mark’s is excited to be offering a Building Strong Foundations online parenting course via Zoom on Monday 1 June 2020, 7:00pm–9:00pm.   The evening will be hosted by Trish Howes; who has 30 years’ experience as a family and parenting counsellor; and Erica Oliver, St Mark’s Outreach Minister. Cost is $10 per couple, $5 per single.

The evening will consist of a video presentation and a few self-reflection exercises.  The topics covered include:

Part 1: The role of the family 

  • Any expectations to be perfect parents are unrealistic and unhelpful
  • No instant recipe or formula for bringing up children
  • Different situations and different children call for different approaches
  • Some general principles that apply to all families
  • Value of discussions with other parents
  • Challenge of pace of life today
  • Vital for parents to invest enough time and energy.

Part 2: Patterns for a healthy life 

  • Having a vision for your family life
  • Pausing to think about what we want to achieve
  • What will our children’s memories be of us and their home in 20 years’ time?

Come and gain valuable practical advice to help you on your parenting journey.
