The public health situation over the last 12 months has been very challenging for everyone. For families, with all the anxieties, uncertainties, and upheavals, there have been additional demands on parents, challenges to usual routines, and stretched coping skills. 

This course is in the East Limerick area and delivered by SHEP, The Social & Health Education Project in collaboration with Hospital FRC, Croom FRC, and Ballyhoura Development and funded through Healthy Ireland and SICAP.

What's involved?

Participants will have the opportunity to discuss their children's anxieties and how they as a parent respond to this.

Amongst other topics the course will explore:

  • Supporting younger children with worries related to school and friends
  • Exploring the ‘Good Enough Parent’
  • Communication and Listening
  • Noticing and attending to Stress
  • Supporting yourself to benefit your children
