A DVD-based course for Mums and Dads at St. Mary the Virgin, Mortlake

Being a parent is great fun. But it can also be really tough. Parentalk is a course for dads and mums of children and early teens. It includes the chance to talk to other parents about the day-to-day challenges you face, and share the things that are going well.

The course will be facilitated by Revd. Tom Carson in a church room at St. Mary the Virgin, Mortlake, between 8 – 9.30pm on the following Tuesdays:

5th May: It’s not just me
12th May: Love them and let them know
19th May: It’s good to talk
2nd June: Boundaries and battles
9th June: Parenting with elastic
16th June: Creating a sense of belonging

Cost: £10 per person including course booklet (£5 for an additional parent).

Quotes from those who attended last time:

Great format with enough time for input as well as group sharing. Good range of topics covered. Enjoyed the interviews with other families and have taken some of their ideas on board. Lovely non-judgemental atmosphere.

Good size group, excellent facilitator, ample time to discuss issues without ever overrunning , open and honest group, friendly atmosphere.

The different topics each week were very good. Each focused on a really important aspect of parenting. It was also good that the course approach was not to tell you what to do, but to let you explore your own approach to parenting

It was a very enjoyable course and it was good to meet everyone.

Thought the timing worked really well. Thank you for a very worth while and enjoyable course. Tuesday nights became a favourite of mine.

Thank you – a fantastic opportunity to help the process of parenting.

Group size was good. 8-10 allows everyone space to speak.
