Some feedback from parenting sessions with South Asian, African, and Eastern European parents in Liverpool, 2012:

  • I enjoyed learning from other parents
  • The examples and explanations were useful
  • It was good talking about the problems we have with kids and how to deal with them
  • Perfect
  • Comfortable
  • Thankyou very much for your original 'parentcraft course'.  I felt great being listened to my concerns as a new mum, and I find your 'stepladder' model to be a useful tool indeed which helps me set realistic expectations of myself and my baby (Russian parent)
