“The course was offered across the Pre-prep and Prep schools to our parent body. The general consensus at the end of the course was that it was well worth doing. Many couples had taken on board the lessons learned or had certainly examined their parenting styles.” Noel Andrews (H0D Bishops Pre-Prep)
“We found the Effective Parenting course to be fantastic. The few hours a week are paying off in a changed perspective for life that is helping our family to live in a very harmonious way. It has given us practical tips and overarching Godly principles that have given us confidence in parenting that we and our children have really benefitted from.” Rob & Robyn Wright (Bishops Family)

It also answers some of the difficult questions we as parents face and gives a clear way to deal with and resolve these.” Sue & Steven Crosse (St Cyprians family)
