Free parenting tips in Hereford

A FREE parenting course starts on Thursday and will run for 10 weeks.

Marie Morris is running the project aimed at parents and carers of children aged up to 10.

It runs from the Christian Life Centre on Edgar Street in Hereford every Thursday from 9.30am to 11.30am.

Marie said: “I think there is often a taboo about parenting courses, where people think they are just for those who are in crisis or struggling with difficult children.

“But we want to open them up to everyone, because children to do not arrive with a manual, and bringing them up is one of the hardest jobs!”

I fear it is to late some parents of the parents needed educating, birth control, how to cook a meal, parenting skills that have now gone in many cases. Skills now only seem to be the working of a mobile device. But I suppose this group are doing their best when others have not bothered. It's frightening to think what some of today's children are going to be like if they become parents.

I talked to a teacher about the proposed government scheme to give all school children up to age 7 a free school meal at lunchtime. She told me that whilst she thought it a good idea in principle, her school (Like many others according to her) has to teach some children aged 5 how to use a knife and fork!
As Gillian1961 states above, it does make you wonder what society is coming to.

Well done to Marie Morris and the Christian Life Centre. I can only see this being good news for the parents who attend. I wonder what, if any, targeting is done to attract parents who might benefit the most?

Do not get me wrong - anything that helps the "modern" parent is good - however my concern is where it's being held . I recall that some time ago I believe that some people attached to this Church were advised of the dangers of them giving out sweets to children unsolicited .
If I am mis guided I apologise but I don't think I am.

This seems to be aimed at a target audience - who don't work!!
What about those who do work - but still have daily dilemmas with their 'up to 10 year olds'??
As much as i can see this as being a good thing - i only wish that these classes were sometimes more accessible by all!
