The Positive Parenting courses include group discussions and practical tasks to help you build on your strengths and give you time and space to think about any changes you want to make. 

The courses are run in community venues and are usually made up of six 2-hour sessions, each led by trained and experienced facilitators.

There is also a book, Raising Faith, which is full of stories and encouragement to help parents feel enthused and confident to nurture faith in their children.

Being a parent is one of life’s greatest joys, but it is also one of its biggest challenges. There’s hardly a mum or dad on the face of the earth who, at times, is not overawed by the task of parenting. That’s why Care for the Family have created Parentalk, a great parenting course for small groups.

Parentalk is a ready-to-run course for all parents of children aged up to the early teenage years.

In six sessions, Parentalk 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.

Who let the dads out logo
Who Let the Dads Out? is a growing movement that inspires and resources churches to support fathers, father-figures and their children.

Up and down the country, churches have started to run ‘Who Let the Dads Out?’ groups – creating a space, typically on a Saturday morning, for fathers, father-figures and their children to spend time together.

They have also created the ‘Daddy Cool!’ parenting course, and have lots of resources on their website to encourage and support Churches in this area of ministry.  Find out more here
