If you’re a parent of kids aged 4 – 18 years, you’ll want to be at Ireland’s first and only “Parenting Expo”! We all know parents are under increasing pressure in today’s busy and fast paced lives, but where do you go to get the answers to the questions you want to ask.
Unfortunately, teenagers don’t come with a manual, so as parents – especially with your eldest child you can find yourself constantly questioning the decisions you have to make..and there are plenty of them!
From how to get kids to eat healthily, to the right amount of exercise, how much social media can you allow and how do you control it, how do you pick the right schools, aftercare, second level, third level, how much discipline without putting kids under pressure, being mindful of their mental health, how to get the balance with quality family time…..the list goes on and on.
We certainly seem to have a good range of support products and services for pregnancy and baby years, but then the little ones head off to school the support seems to drop dramatically.
“The Parenting Expo” is about providing information and support to parents of children aged 4 – 18 years across all different sectors. Some of the country’s top experts will be speaking about Nutrition, Coping Skills, Social Media and a range of other topics, in addition to a parents’ panel discussion. A large exhibition area will feature suppliers of everything from kids’ entertainers to single parent support to healthy eating, mindfulness, schools, aftercare and much more.
This one really is all about the parents! The Expo will take place on Friday 29th September when all the little (and big) treasures are at school so the parents can drop off, come to the Expo for some real support, information and a well-earned break and pop back to collect them at 4pm.
Even if you don’t want to attend one of the talks, parents can wander about the exhibitors area, have a coffee…and probably pick up some of the most valuable information of all…by talking to other parents!
