Needs of children and parents
Carole has expertise in child development and an excellent understanding of the specific needs of children, and parents, for nurturing, setting limits, stimulation, role modelling, positivity, communication, teaching, values, self-care and responsibility. She knows that parenting can be difficult without learning effective skills. Effective parenting does not generally come naturally as many of us previously believed. Not all parents wish to talk about their parenting issues in a group setting. Some parents are unable to commit to attending a parenting course each week. Parenting skills can also be applied to general relationships with others – family, friends and strangers.
Fun and balance
Easier Parenting is a website to help parents and carers to be supported in this vital and highly important task of raising children. It is a place to come and learn essential parenting skills, to read relevant interesting articles, to be inspired with heart-warming stories and quotes and to find out about how best to care for ourselves. Parents and carers deserve to have an enjoyable, stimulating and meaningful life while they are nurturing their loved ones. This is perfectly achievable. This site gives ideas for having fun with your children and/or your spouse/partner. It also is a resource for helping parents to achieve balance in their lives. Time management tips will also be offered.
We plan to recommend books and other relevant parenting services and resources in the near future
It takes a village to raise a child.
