Parenting roles and responsibilities
Being a parent can be one of the most amazing things we can do in our lives and it can also be one
of our biggest challenges. Your child will rely on you in many ways and you are responsible for their
safety, health, care and actions. As they grow from toddler into child and then teenager they will
develop their own circle of friends. You will notice their independence and interest in the outside world
and slowly they will become more independent.
Having a child means a lifelong commitment to someone who will need your care and support. If you
are a parent then you are responsible in the eyes of the law for the safety, well-being and upbringing
of your child. Your children are a reflection of you and your parenting. The most effective parenting
tool we have is the example we set as good role models early on. This will help your child grow into a
responsible, healthy and happy adult.
Tameside Parenting support offers a variety of courses and methods of support, from telephone
helplines, online and group parenting courses and one to one support sessions.
The telephone Support Helpline is there for you to use when things get a little bit too much for you
and is manned by trained parenting professionals to offer support and advice when you need it.
The groups we offer give you a chance to share experiences and ideas with other parents as well as
getting advice and support from professionals. Our groups run over 10 or 12 weeks depending on
the support required.
Our one to one sessions offer a more bespoke package to help you with more targeted issues over a
short period of time.
