If you were visiting the Hub for the first time in person we would be making your first coffee for you now.
The Hub is a place where everyone’s family is celebrated.
The parents who attend are from many ethnicities and family dynamics. There are mums, dads and grandparents with children ranging from babies to children who have left home. All have things to celebrate and things that challenge them, but you can be sure they find the support they need from staff and other Hubstars.
Our aim is to support parents with as much knowledge about parenting issues as we can. Our sessions are requested by the parents and are fun, interactive and practical. We hear many stories of families that go straight home and see positive changes in their homes.
Topics we have covered:
Family Fun Nights
Rules of Respect
Children and Anger
Helping Your Child Become A Great Reader
Over the many cups of coffee parents share at the Hub dining table, issues are expressed and solutions are searched for. Parents often find out they are not the only ones that face those problems and as a result they can request special workshops on a huge range of topics.
Past topics include:
New dinner ideas
Fixing holes in walls
Talking to kids about their bodies
Internet use in their families
