ChildLinks Issue 2

Barnardos. (1998). ChildLinks Issue 2.
The parenting children receive is a cornerstone for their emotional and social well-being. Their experiences within the family have a profound influence on the quality of relationships they form with others, including their own children. Over the past number of years there has been an increasing emphasis on support for parents and the importance of parenting. It is not difficult to identify some of the forces which have contributed to the growth of demand for parenting courses in Ireland. This issue looks at parenting programmes.
