Being a better parent

Charlotte Carver urges us to take some time out and join the Family Caring Trust, who offer Practical Skills to help Parents be more responsible and effective

Joining and following a Family Caring Trust group programme (2 hours, once a week, for 8 weeks) I always say is like going to Weight Watchers compared to reading a slimming magazine.  There’s great support in a group, as we know from having attended WiRE network groups.

I’ve known their programmes since 1989 when my children and stepchildren were 13, 12, 10 and 5.  I’ve lead them all over the years, and have been asked to run the teen parenting programme early next year here in rural Worcestershire on the borders of Herefordshire and Gloucestershire.
