Accessible to any family expecting a baby, or with a child or young person aged 0-18 living in Cardiff, the aim of Cardiff Parenting is to work in partnership with families living in Cardiff to improve parenting confidence and skills, strengthen relationships and nurture well-being and resilience.
During the last few months when many families have been in lock-down, Cardiff Parenting has continued to work directly with parents and has also been developing a range of online resources advising parents on dealing with issues such as:
· Dealing with demanding behaviour during uncertain times
· Helping children with their behaviour: Connection & Correction
· Supporting young children with their feelings during uncertain times
· Window of tolerance
· Returning to school
These, and other soon to be added resources, can be found on the new look Cardiff Parenting webpage along with a link to follow the newly launched Cardiff Parenting Facebook page. The Facebook page is updated daily with ideas for home-based activities for teens, young children and families, recipes, quizzes, well-being and parenting tips.
Support is available from Cardiff Family Advice and Support including the Family Gateway, The Index and updated support service information aimed at professionals, children & young people and parents & carers.
