Before the programme, my confidence as a mother was low and despite my best efforts, I was sometimes criticised and judged as a parent, which knocked me for six.
Now I am confident that my parenting is having a positive effect on my two boys and my husband.
I was also surprised at how the facilitators encouraged us as mothers to nurture ourselves and emphasised how we should value our role as mothers.
As the course progressed I could see how - if we as mothers were stressed - this in turn has a negative impact on all family members, so using my personal power, I now deal with problems and issues in a quicker and more positive way than before, when maybe I would have let them fester and become stressed or low.
I highly recommended this course to any mother who is struggling with any issues of parenting, or has self doubt, is stressed or depressed, or simply wants to add new techniques and strategies to an already complex ‘job description’.
