Recently we were given funding from St Margaret’s Scottish Episcopal Church in Newlands to run a parenting class for some of our Mums.
Since April we have been meeting every Wednesday morning in Govanhill Free Church, with a group of mums primarily from a Pakistani background, but also one Romanian mum was referred to us from The Space, a local agency that we share a common ethos with.
We have covered such subjects as “looking after yourself” “the importance of words” “boundaries” “listening” “play” and much more.
It was lovely every week to have Gail and Ailsa look after the children, and Shaida doing both the hospitality and translation as required.
I’m pretty sure that the children’s favourite thing was the messy play every week!
The mums thoroughly enjoyed our sessions and we had a special time today, encouraging them to build good memories with their children.
