Parenting Circle

>> The Role of a Father


 

 
Parenting can be extremely rewarding but can also have its challenges.

Even with all the parenting resources available today, it’s our sense of trusting ourselves that empowers us. Creating an ongoing format to enhance that confidence is a powerful tool to have in our parenting repertoire. It might be as simple as talking over your options about a particular challenge with a trusted mentor. An ongoing moms group that enables listening and sharing in a supportive way may be a good source of feedback. There are a variety of options for developing this important trait in your parenting.



Parenting Circles consist of a group of parents who come together weekly. Shared camaraderie, new insights and many hands – on tools blossom.


I cover a colorful spectrum of parenting concerns, from how to cure those television blues, to the more complicated issues of non – shaming discipline, limit setting, establishing routines, loving and compassionate communication, creating values, understanding the role of development at particular life stages and so much more. In addition to the focus on our children is the equally important focus on ourselves.

We must take the time to grow ourselves if we are to truly our children into the exquisite flowers they are meant to be. Discover some essential skills to grow and strengthen your connection and enjoy the process. 

The Parenting Circle is a safe place where parents come together to ask questions, to learn, to support and be supported by one another. Get your questions answered!  All issues related to parenting can be discussed. 



There are endless challenges in being a parent. The experiences of parenting are rarely what we planned. We often find ourselves in unexpected places with no road map or shining light. Challenges we never imagined can instantly pop into our parenting arena. Parenting is one of life’s most amazing and personal journeys that allow us to venture places never known before. Being a parent will probably be the most rewarding thing you'll ever do - and the toughest responsibility.

Being a parent means creating a loving, safe environment for your children as they grow from baby to toddler, right through to the teenage years. You'll need different skills for each stage, but at all times your child will depend on you. You'll become the expert on your child and on what they need to grow into happy, healthy adults.

Loving your child, with no strings attached, is the most important thing you can do. But you'll also have to make a huge number of decisions about the best way to bring up your child. This responsibility brings joy and excitement, but it can also be overwhelming, frustrating or even boring at times. The responsibility of raising children can be demanding, overwhelming, and even frustrating. Most people manage these emotional and practical challenges with a mixture of love, help from relatives and friends advice, common sense and luck.



I have raised four healthy children into adulthood and know from experience how much I needed sometimes some words of encouragement. You'll use many qualities over the years, including some you never realised you had. First and foremost is an unlimited supply of love. Be prepared for the greatest demands to be made on this at inconvenient times - such as the early hours of the morning when small children are refusing to sleep or teenagers are still out having fun.

The changes, both physical and psychological, that occur during the first three years of childhood are truly amazing. Raising children into healthy and happy adults is a challenging job. The management of injuries and illnesses can seem overwhelming to a new parent and even an experienced one meeting the challenge of a new health situation.

Who told us how to be a mother or father? Who told us that babies could cry for a long time in the middle of the night for no apparent reason? How do we now if an illness is dangerous, or normal? With so few parents having the support of extended family members who can bring experience, perspective and folk wisdom to the situation, parents are often without any guide’s and resources.


 


Parenting Circles offered in the centre wishes to fill the gap by supplying practical knowledge and management strategies for families. I would like to help parents have a more rewarding and less traumatic experience dealing with their child’s health care. Each child is individual, so no child will fit exactly into any particular mold.

The key to a healthy and creative parent-child relationship is our trust in the essential goodness of the infant/child, and in the complementary nature of their needs. Sourced from the spirit of the child, and supported by their larger community, this relationship is the wellspring for a well being and a well planet.
The children are our future.

Come and join a safe support group.  The Parenting Circle will meet every Tuesday morning at 10am. This is a great opportunity to address your specific concerns and receive on-going support as you work through and try out different ideas.

Gráinne found that sharing her knowledge about children and supporting families as they navigate through their own personal journey of parenthood was not only well received, but also extremely rewarding.  Her hope is to provide the information and support needed to allow parents to become the parent they want to be and bring joy back into their homes. 


Trust. Parents who come to support groups count on each other to listen openly, respond honestly and always act with compassion. Parents know that all information shared in the support group is confidential and never discussed outside the group setting, within the limits of the law. All parents have the option of anonymity in the support group.


Reciprocity. Parents provide non-judgmental support to one another. Parents are the experts about their own families and their own children. Together, parents learn from one another about ways to strengthen their families.
