This is a stand-alone course that is not gender specific and is not about the behaviours of others – it is about personal discovery and development.

The Amazing Mums programme recognises that there is no such thing as a perfect parent.
This programme is not to point out failures or faults but rather to strengthen your relationships with your children and your role as a parent.
As a parent you are the expert in relation to your own child and this course is about celebrating how amazing you all are.
Each child is individual, as is each parenting style and we recognise that one size does not fit all.  This course will enable you to pick up some tips and reaffirm what a good job you are already doing.
