Being a parent is the hardest job in the world and the one that we have the least training for before we take on the job!! It is important to remember you are not alone, most of us have been in this situation. Do not give up. Help is out there. How about trying out a parenting group – getting together with other parents who may be feeling the same? You might make some new friends, learn some interesting tips on how to deal with different types of behaviour and find out what other things are out there that might be useful for you. If you are interested, contact your nearest Children’s Centre or one of one of the phone numbers under 'programme descriptions'.
