What is the Parenting online short course?

Parenthood can be tough – any parent, no matter how old their children, will agree with that. When a new baby comes along, the sheer volume of information that you need to get your ahead around can be a daunting prospect, especially when others are keen to give their individual advice on every parenting subject going.

Whether you’re a new parent or not, the syllabus covered in this course will help to support the natural learning curve that you will follow as you embark upon your parenting journey.
