Parenting Puzzle

Middlesbrough Children’s Centres offer the Family Links 4 week Parenting Puzzle Workshops.

Being a parent can be one of the hardest things in the world but also the most rewarding.  The Parenting Puzzle workshops are a great way of finding out how to get the best out of family life, with some helpful tips, ideas and strategies to make sense of being a parent and help you understand why your children do what they do.   

Especially designed for parents of under 5’s, we also provide a free crèche.
