Here is some more information about PEPE:
PEPE offers an opportunity for parents and whānau to meet, share ideas, enhance parenting strengths and knowledge and make connections with other families in their communities. Parents join others from their community to explore and share their experiences, attitudes and feelings and make informed decisions about parenting that are right for each of them.
The courses are run in small groups (6-8 people) to ensure parents’ needs are met and that a warm and inviting environment is set so group members feel they can participate. Although there is a framework of topics for each course, parents direct the content to that which is most relevant to their situation.
