Ballina Neighbourhood Youth Project is running a common sense parenting course beginning in February. The course runs for six weeks, one morning a week in the NYP on Pearse Street. Common sense parenting provides parents of children aged six to 16 years with a menu of proved techniques that will aid them in building good family relationships, preventing and correcting misbehaviour, using consequences to improve behaviour, teaching self control, and staying calm. There are limited places available. Contact Stephanie on (086 ) 6017337 or [email protected] for more information or to reserve a place.
