Parenting can be challenging but it can also be fun, rewarding, wonderful and exciting. There is something really special about being a mum or a dad, but there is not a set 'how to parent' guide. However, there are strategies you can try to counteract common behavioural and other problems we may face in our journey as parents, from toddler-hood through to teenage years.
It is our responsibility to keep our own (and all children) safe and to offer positive role models. Young lives are affected by parents’ actions and attitudes.
