PARENTING TOGETHER TO BE YOUR CHILD’S FIRST INFLUENCE is a new website aiming to inform, support and encourage local parents as the first influencers of their children. The website is launched in association with Parents as First Teachers in Amersham. This lottery funded programme is designed to enhance child development and school achievement.

ParentingTogetherThe site is run by volunteers and PAFT staff (Parents as First teachers) and invites both local experts and parents to share their experiences and tips on a range of topics from sleep, diet & behaviour.

PAFT are running a series of FREE Open Meetings over the summer (open to all parents and carers of children 0 – 5 years). Topics include:

• Parenting Pressures – Tuesday 19th May

When a new baby arrives, everybody has an opinion! Sometimes this can undermine our confidence. When does support become pressure? Come along to discuss and share experiences.

• Limits & Boundaries – Tuesday 9th June

“The most important thing parents can give their children is love.The second most important thing is discipline.”
T.Berry Brazelton

How do we teach our children acceptable behaviour? Can saying “NO” be a way of showing love? Come and share insights and ideas about approaches to discipline, an important part of parenting, which is often more easily said than done.

• Summer Fun – Tuesday 14th July

We’ll provide the activities for you and your child to enjoy some precious time. With the summer holidays approaching we can all share information regarding local activities.
