KINGSBURGH Child and Family Welfare Society offered a life skills positive parenting programme to parents recently.

“Being a parent is always challenging. It is often an extremely difficult task to fulfill.

“We are not running this programme to create perfect parents, but to help parents replace the perhaps less helpful things they say and do with more helpful and effective things,” said senior social worker, Sandra Govender.

The training is AECI-funded and was conducted to facilitate learning and sharing of ideas. Topics covered included challenges that parents face regarding discipline, defiance of authority, respect, trust, parental roles and communication.

For further information, contact 031 916 2274 or 031 916 3007 during office hours, 8am to 12pm, or email kingsburghwelfare@telkom sa.net
