Flying Start is all about providing support for the whole family; mums, dads and carers – as well as the extended family.

Looking after young children can be very challenging and no one has all the answers. Parenting programmes can support parents/ carers in their role and may include topics such as:

  • Promoting positive parenting
  • Coping with/managing children’s behaviour
  • Developing routines
  • Potty training
  • Sleeping problems
  • Other common parenting issues.

As well as the group sessions, you are welcome to talk to Flying Start staff on a one to one basis in order to discuss any aspect of parenting. If you want, this can be arranged as part of a community group or in the families own home.
