Parenting Programs and Workshops in Brisbane

by Sally Foster (follow)
A list of parenting seminars and programs available in Brisbane

Let's face it, it takes a village to raise a child. Being a Mum is wonderful, but it is not always easy. We reach out to our partner, friends and family for advice and support on raising our little ones. But there is also support out there from the professionals.

Here is a list of places that have come recommended by other Mums on Brisbane Mum's Group or from Raising Children, which is the Australian Parenting Website supported by the government.

1. Triple P Postive Parenting Program

The Triple P Positive Parenting Program is a free program for Queensland residents that is supported by the Australian Government. The purpose of Triple P is to help you raise happy kids by managing misbehaviour, setting rules and routines, encouraging behaviour you like and taking care of yourself as a parent. It is aimed at parents of children aged 0-16.

The program can be completed in a number of ways. You can complete a course online in your own time. Or you could attend a session face to face either in an individual session with a one on one provider or attend one of their group sessions.

See here for more information and to find a session near you.

2. Child and Baby Health Clinics

The Queensland Government provides free health services, parenting information and support for families of children aged 0-12 years at Child and Baby Health Clinics across Brisbane.

You can visit a clinic face to face and meet with a qualified child health nurse. See here to find your closest clinic. The other option is to call 13 HEALTH (13 43 25 84) and speak with a family health nurse. The line is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

3. Maggie Dent

Maggie Dent is a popular author and educator with a particular interest in the early years, adolescence and resilience. She offers online courses for common concerns relating to parenting including bullying, screen time and stress.

She is coming to Brisbane on 15 October 2018 to deliver a seminar on Raising Boys. See here for more information on this event.

4. Hands Holding Hands

Hands Holding Hands is a relationship-based early intervention program designed to enhance attachment security between parents and children. Their mission is 'To be sensitive and empathic in encouraging and supporting parents and caregivers to learn about their own emotional and attachment needs to then better understand and respond to their child’s needs and behaviours'.

Hands Holding Hands offers workshops throughout Brisbane. There are workshops aimed at both expecting parents and parents and they work in conjunction with the Peach Tree Perinatal Wellness Centre.

If you know of any other programs and seminars in Brisbane, please let us know in the comments below and we can add it to the list.

If you are struggling or need support as a parent, the government also offers a completely free and confidential Parent Line. They offer free counselling and support for parents and carers. Contact 1300 30 1300.
