Family Matters (Thursday Morning)

Facilitated by The Family Education Centre the Family Matters group teaches clients parenting skills. This is a mandatory group for the ladies. For two hours on Thursday mornings the group discusses a specific topic each week, including: different parenting styles, encouragement, misbehaviour, discipline, effects of violence and abuse on children, communication, and ‘winning at parenting without beating your kids.’ The women learn about parenting skills and are given an opportunity to share their experiences about what it is like to be a parent.
