Cork Children & Young People's Services Committee

 Supporting Parents

Cork CYPSC  Supporting Parents Subgroup has made a series of Parent Action Leaflets because we understand that supporting children’s social and emotional well-being can bring its own challenges.

These were developed following a consultation with parents across the Cork area, please click here to view the consultation document.

 We suggest 6 Parent Actions with simple advice for each stage of your child’s social and emotional development to help you both on your journey together.
