The ‘recreational’ or ‘non-community’ pages of Rochford Life are here to provide sources of help in different areas of life. We add resources when needs are brought to our attention. Our writer for this series is an Essex-trained parent trainer who has led a number of local parenting courses. This series of ‘sheets’ is not exhaustive but they are extensive and we hope will help you in your parenting. We do hope to add to them from time to time. You may find the sheer volume of information here somewhat intimidating and so we suggest you think about how YOU might want to use this ‘course’. Either skim read it and jot down notes of things that stand out to you, or choose to work on specific areas. After a while you’ll see it’s not as much as it seems.
The style of each page will be short paragraph or ‘bullet-point' style to separate out individual things for you to think about with plenty of white space around to make it easy to read. Each individual part needs thinking about. We have sought to keep it in manageable bite sizes, aware that there is a lot to take in - so don’t rush.
