Lemons to Lemonade runs a series of workshops for parents that are aimed at helping you develop and maintain positive, loving relationships with your children and confidently tackle specific problems if they arise. Being parents ourselves we know that at times being a parent can be exhausting, scary and doesn’t come with an official manual of what to do when things don’t go to plan.
Psychological research has shown that the keys to good outcomes for children are positive attachment relationships; caring, consistent and boundaried approaches to parenting; and a stimulating and social environment. But what does this mean in practice, how do you do it, and how do you go about making changes if things have got a bit off track?
Lemons to Lemonade workshops help you discover how to develop and maintain positive, loving relationships with your children and confidently tackle specific problems if they arise, whilst also helping you to look after yourself and find enjoyment in your life as a parent if this has got a bit lost. Our parenting workshops are run jointly by Dr. Rachel Skippon and Dr. Stephen Skippon.
We run a series of full and half-day workshops on specific parenting topics such as our Early Years Parenting Skills Workshop (for parents of toddlers and young children), Parenting when you’re Separated or Divorced Workshop, Surviving and Thriving as a Parent of a Child with Special Needs Workshop and our Bully-Proof Your Child Workshop.
Our parenting workshops are run at various venues in the region, including Gladstone’s Library in Hawarden, which has its own café, Food for Thought, a comfortable lounge, and beautiful grounds that workshop participants can use.
