Healthy Child, Happy Child
Do you worry about your child's weight? Having an underweight or overweight child can make us worry and is a sensitive issue to address. Research shows children who achieve a healthy weight tend to be fitter, healthier, better able to learn and more self-confident and develop lifelong habits for a healthier adult life.
Keeping Your Child Safe Online
The internet is amazing. Children can play, learn, create and connect. The internet opens up a world of exciting possibilities, but do you worry about the amout of time your child is spending online, using social media or playing computer games?

Creative Communities: Active Citizenship Resources for Parents & Carers
Have you ever seen something that bothers you, but you weren’t too sure how you could change it? Have you ever wanted to volunteer at your kid’s school or at your local faith centre, but weren’t too sure where to start? Or have you felt that you want to connect with people and learn new skills, but haven’t found the time or the opportunities?
This resource will help you to understand how to be an active citizen. It will explore what this means and help you to help others in your local community. You will find ways to identify lots of opportunities to support and connect with local organisations, people and initiatives.
Three themes are addressed in detail – Climate Change, Consumer Choices and Community Connections – all at a personal level, locally and through global interconnections.
