Testimonials

Here’s what parents are saying about Family Centre’s Family Groups:

Co-Parenting and Blended Families:
“I learned about communication with the other parent and the importance of being respectful to the other parent. I would like to come back for more groups as this was very informative.”

“The material covered in co-parenting and blended families workshop was very helpful in terms of providing reinforcement as well as new ideas/strategies for trying to manage the (often challenging) relationship with my child’s father in a healthy way.”

Survive to Thrive: Crisis Management for Parents
“I learned about power struggles and how to not let things get out of control. I learned how to deal with my child’s feelings.”

“It was helpful to learn how to avoid the conflict cycle, self-awareness, and degree of stress.”
