Welcome to Parenting Today 2020, the third series of free talks in libraries in County Wexford. This year, for the first time, parenting talks will also be offered in four community venues in Bridgetown, Raheen, Ramsgrange and Taghmon.
This programme is brought to you by Wexford County Council Public Library Service in partnership with Wexford Children & Young People’s Services Committee (CYPSC).
Parenting Today has been carefully developed in response to feedback from parents. Events are designed to be relevant and informative and to offer an opportunity for families to interact with practitioners working in the community care, education and health sectors. The audience will be an integral part of each session with questions and discussion encouraged.
Other talks in the series cover many aspects of parenting from Asthma to Anxiety, and from TikTok to “Taking Care of you as a Parent”. Parenting a child with special needs with ADHD, Dyspraxia, Down Syndrome and Dyslexia will all be featured in this year’s programme.
Other invaluable talks will focus on anxiety, first aid, drugs, de-stressing techniques and positive discipline. We will address common concerns that parents have about their child’s speech and language development; how to successfully master breast feeding and how to enable your child to sleep through the night.
Last but not least, we offer you talks and practical sessions to support literacy and to foster a love of reading with your child. These are sessions that parents can attend and enjoy with their child.
We look forward to introducing you to the free library services including an excellent collection of parenting books and e-books available to you at your local library.
For more information and to book your place for any event, please contact your local library.
