About the Parenting Seminar Series

They say it takes a village to raise a child. Our parenting seminar series aims to provide parents the tools to manage difficult situations and help them be well informed and involved in their children’s lives.

Over the next 12 months, we have partnered with some of Australia’s most acclaimed professionals to help you feel empowered by developing strategies and techniques to create positive change.

All parents, grandparents and guardians interested in developing the emotional and social competencies of their children are encouraged to register for one or all of these sessions. 

This series is a partnership between Council and the Manningham Youth Alliance and is a key objective of Council’s Healthy City Strategy 2017/2021.
