Mellow groups are divided into three areas:
In the first session, usually a morning, you will take part in a parents’ group, discussing areas around your life and wellbeing, for example, Trust, Depression, You and Your Body and Self Esteem.
You and your child will have a snack together with everyone else. There will then be a fun activity – things such as Gloop, Bubbles, Nursery Rhymes, Music, hand painting and other free/cheap activities which you can then try at home.
Once the children are settled again in the children’s group, parents take part in a parenting workshop and take part in discussions/activities on Understanding parenting, Keeping them Busy, Feelings and many more. Parent’s videos will also be shared each week. Parents appreciate the advice and support the group offers. No one is an expert and we can all learn from one another.
Being a parent is both rewarding and challenging, no parent is perfect! The good news is that you can make small changes. You can strengthen your relationship with your child making the task of parenting easier and more enjoyable.
