Advice for parents & guardians...

Everyone looking after a child or children knows how difficult it can be. The highs and lows can take their toll on anyone and it’s good to know that there is a lot of support from people in a similar situation. Our parents and guardians forum is a place for you to ask questions, make conversation and even offer your own advice to others about your parenting style and experiences. You might be a same sex couple needing advice, or you may be thinking about fostering and want to ask other foster carers about their experiences. You may be a dad who is struggling to see his children or you might be a step-parent pulling your hair out over a delinquent child who doesn’t value you. Find answers here or ask your question for support from our other members in a similar position.
