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’.
