Parenting

At Cathedral we understand that:

  • Being a parent can be tough

  • Raising children is a challenge and it doesn't necessarily get any easier as they get older

  • Phases come and go

  • Boundaries will be tested

  • Growing up isn't easy for children either

  • Parents can sometimes feel adrift, unsure of what to do or who to turn to

At Cathedral we are always  happy to help, in most cases we have worked with parents who have seen or experienced these situations before.

To help parents, the school subscribes to 'Parenting ideas' which produces information and guidance for parents of children of all ages which we hope will be of use to you. Click on the magazine image to read some of their parenting magazines. 

Michael Grose is a well respected author and 'parenting guru' in Australia and writes well with some good advice which we hope will be of use to you in the future. Regular advice is added to this page we hope you will find some of this helpful.
