‘‘Most parents are doing a great job,’’ The Parenting Place’s John Cowan says. ‘‘This year we are coming to Orewa with a special presentation, ‘Raising Tricky, Challenging Children’. Advice on parenting has burgeoned in recent years – whole sections of bookshops are now devoted to family life, and the internet is full of parenting websites. ‘‘All this extra information is great, but it is confusing. There are multiple opinions on just about any topic to do with children. Many parents are feeling swamped and worried if they are doing the right thing. The Parenting Place helps you do this incredibly important job with confidence. Raising Tricky, Challenging Children, June 14, 7.30pm at Orewa College Events Centre, $5. email aucklandnorth@theparenting place.com, or visit theparentingplace.com.
