Online parenting courses

No one ever said being a parent was going to be easy. In fact, it is probably the most demanding job you will ever have. Parenting courses, workshops and programmes are a great way to help you find new ways of working with your children. They can help you come up with new ideas, problem solve and reduce stress. You won’t be alone with many of the concerns you have so it can be encouraging to recognise and build upon your existing skills at the same time as sharing and learning from other parents and carers. 

We offer a range of free online parenting courses designed to support parents feel more confident across all ages of childhood. You are in control of what you learn, at a time that suits you and at your own pace. You can do them alone or with someone else, together or separately but in tandem – it's your choice.
