Parenting is a rewarding job but one which can be difficult at times. Barnardos has developed a series of booklets to help parents answer common concerns and deal with the challenges of parenthood.
Research studies have consistently found that a child's early years of life are critical to their emotional and intellectual development. These booklets are for parents of children under six.
This guide provides information about the value of early childhood learning and the impact it can have on a child’s quality of life, development, future opportunities and experiences.
This booklet highlights the benefits of outdoor play and how playing outside supports your child’s learning and development.
This booklet aims to give you a better understanding of your child’s behaviour and what it is that your child is trying to communicate through their behaviour.
This booklet provides guidance to parents of children between the ages of 6 and 12 to help create a positive, loving and supportive relationship between you and your child.
