Many parents feel that parenting has never been so ... complicated. At Fegans we are often helping parents who feel overwhelmed juggling busy lives with badly behaved children and teens. Additional challenges such as the breakdown of family life and the onset of social media issues mean that our parent support workers are often called out to support parents at the end of their tether. We have put together some of our top tips for parenting, including a short mini course to help you with some of the most common issues.
The Parenting Top Tips starts with a Discovery Course of three short videos relevant to the age group of your child.
When you sign up we'll ask you a couple of questions about your child so we can send you the most helpful tips we can, to your family, with love from all of us at Fegans!
Over many years, Fegans has had amazing results in helping and supporting even the most troubled families so let us share our expertise with you!

If your child is adopted or fostered, or has otherwise experience trauma or abuse, you may need extra assistance eg. from Fegans.
This is because even if the trauma, abuse or neglect may have occured years ago it may nevertheless have shaped the synaptic pathways in their brain. This can often be reversed given time, expert help and patience.
