Helen Culhane and Therese Barry attended the launch of Loveparenting on Friday the 23rd of January 2015. The Children’s Grief Project had an information stand at the launch and met with many other agencies within the city working with children.
Welcome to loveparenting.ie! The purpose of love parenting is to provide parents with high quality information on some of the elements of how positive parenting can support their child’s development at each stage and how they can access further support your if you are finding some elements of parenting (or perhaps all of it) a little challenging.
Parenting Limerick is a network of organisations that provide parenting and family support in Limerick City. We are working together to provide parents with the information and support that they need so that they can be the best parents they can. There is already a lot of information out there on parenting and child development, and much of it can be confusing and contradictory!
On our website you will find information on each stage of a child’s development which will help to encourage better developmental outcomes for children and young people at local and community level. You can also search supports to find relevant children’s and parenting services.
The site has information and links to other useful websites about children’s health and well-being, parenting and Family Support services.
Research shows that good quality early years experiences have a lasting impact on children’s learning, health and development. The quality of parenting that a child receives has a major impact on their development. A warm, positive relationship with parents makes children feel safe and secure and this helps them to grow in a way that is healthy and happy. To be able to provide this security for children, parents need to feel confident in their role.
Every child needs support to be all that they can be and the most important people who provide that support and the biggest influence on their future are a child’s parents.
Parenting is the most important job in the world, but it is also the most challenging! No one can do it by themselves. We hope that loveparenting.ie will be a resource to support you in your parenting so that you can build a happy, nurturing, loving relationship with your child.
