Parenting Tips

  • Responsible Pet Ownership Program

    Research has linked this important relationship of children and pets to companionship, empowering responsibility and empathy. However, not all childhood experiences with dogs are positive ones.   The ‘We Are Family’ program helps inform expectant parents of the potential risks and provides them with the knowledge, skills and strategies to ensure that the child /pet relationship is not only a physically and emotionally enriching one, but importantly a safe one as well.

    Tantrums are extremely common among children aged 18-36 months. They come in all shapes and sizes. They can involve spectacular explosions of anger, frustration and disorganised behaviour (when your child ' loses it'). You might see crying, screaming, stiffening limbs, an arched back, kicking falling down, flailing about or running away. If certain situations - shopping, visiting or mealtimes - often bring on temper tantrums, think of ways to make these events easier on your child.

    Children with disability really benefit from early intervention – the earlier, the better. But it can be hard to know which early intervention is right for your child. A good early intervention will be family focused, well structured and based on reliable evidence. Early intervention works best when it’s targeted at your child’s individual needs.
