‘‘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.
