Free online parenting courses

All parents and parents-to-be in Bolton can now access free online parenting courses for every stage from pregnancy to the teenage years.

These courses are for everyone who wants to be the best mum, dad, grandparent or carer that they can be. They are available in over 27 languages.

Developed by health and education workers in Solihull, the approach aims to improve emotional health and wellbeing by supporting relationships. Together we are aiming to change the culture around parents’ self-development and improve children’s wellbeing at the same time. A smoother home life is good for concentration, learning and performance at school.

The courses are:

  • Understanding your pregnancy birth labour and your baby
  • Understanding your baby
  • Understanding your child (0-19+ years, main course)
  • Understanding your teenager’s brain (short course)
