Parentalk is two ready-to-run courses giving parents time to talk about the day-to-day challenges they face, as well as sharing the things that are going well. Over six sessions, Parentalk looks at valuable principles that can be applied on a day-to-day basis with children and teenagers. It is ideal for people who have not taken part in any kind of parenting course before (as well as for those who have) and for any group of parents who want to meet informally.
If you’re passionate about supporting family life and enjoy reading, talking, listening to others and bringing out the best in them, then you will probably make a good Parentalk leader. Qualifications and experience are not essential!
Parentalk can be used in a wide range of settings, including schools, playgroups, parent and toddler groups, antenatal and postnatal groups, churches and community education. The material is flexible. For example, six individual sessions can be run for one to two hours each, or the whole six sessions can be run over a weekend.
Each Parentalk pack includes everything you will need to run a complete course:
Group Leader’s Guide
Giving you step by step, useful tips about running a group and leading parents through the sessions.
10 copies of the Parent Notes
Encouraging messages to remind parents about what they have learned in each session and helping them notice any small, but often significant, changes that are happening in their family life throughout the course.
The Group Leader’s Guide takes you through how and when to use the DVD, featuring:
- Real-life family interviews
- Presenter discussions
- Street vox pops
- ‘My story’ animations
- Parentalk family dramas
Suitable for parents from all different backgrounds and family structures.
