Parent feedback after attending a parenting puzzle in July 2019

  • ”Very relaxed way of thinking through bringing up children. Good structure of programme- important values taught. Good variation of material given- good for all ages of child for parents”
  • ”Great safe atmosphere to be able to share and learn from others and share own experiences without judgement.” 
  • ”It’s been a great experience and the group has always been respectful. I would recommend- parenting is not easy, little help can make biggest difference”
