Parenting Week

18 October, 2021 (All day) to 22 October, 2021 (All day)

Parents have an incredibly special role to play within our society - they are raising our future generation. Whilst most people would agree that this is an important and at times difficult job, often the expectations the society place on parents can make their job much more challenging.

Parenting has changed over the generations. In our grandparent's generation stress was generally about providing for children’s practical needs e.g. food and clothing. Today, parent’s stress may be caused by these practical needs but also around expectations and “getting parenting right”. Parents are facing new challenges as technology develops and the influence of social media.

Parenting NI has a vision of a future where parenting is highly valued and so we believe it's important to take Parenting Week to recognise the important role parents have to play in children's lives and highlight the amazing job they do every day.

Parenting Week 2021 will kick off on the 18th of October and run until the 22nd of October!
