Useful links for parents

    I hope it's okay to put this here, and that it's something that can be added to if parents feel their links could be of some help :)

    Here are some links that I thought may be useful for some parents:

    One family: It's an organization driven to help those parenting alone. It offers supports for the parents, counselling and other helpful advice

    Parentline: Offering tips and advice, also parenting courses

    Rainbows Ireland: This organization is designed to help parents, and children / teens of different age levels to deal with their feelings having lost a parent through death, separation / divorce. For tweens / teens. I know that the Rainbows programme (primary school level) runs on site in some schools, so I'm sure they work with secondary also, so I would inquire.

    I think that its a very important link because it gives parents, children and teens alike an outlet where they can be around others like them and to express their feelings and worries.

    Your drinking:
    This site has some 'recognize the signs' and what to do tips with young people and alcohol

    Cool school bully free: This is an Anti-Bullying programme and support service targeted at second level schools run by the HSE. It provides supports for the parents, teens and teachers.
