ParentStop CLG is a charity working across County Donegal that offers one-to-one and group supports to parents and all those who are in parenting roles. At ParentStop, we promote positive parenting and the need for minding yourself. Across our services, we celebrate and highlight the very important role that parents play in society and the valuable work parents do. Being a parent is very rewarding but can be challenging – ‘children don’t come with a handbook’ and it is ok and often necessary to ask for help. ParentStop is here to help.
As well as offering positive parenting group sessions, one to one parenting plans, parenting when separated group supports we also take time out to offer a chance to relax. Throughout the year whether it is before the mania starts at Christmas or UN Global Parent’s Day or National Parents Week or just an ordinary weekday ParentStop invites parents to take some time out and come along to our ‘Minding Me’ pampering days. Local therapists offering treatments such as shiatsu, reflexology, beauty, and lifestyle treatments, relaxation techniques, etc. donate their time, local businesses donate samples and gifts, and you have a chance to have a cuppa and a chat with other parents, the team at ParentStop, and our partners within the Parent Hub Donegal.
Our most recent day happened November 28th in Donegal FRC organised by Julie Voss of ParentStop in South Donegal and was a huge success for the parents, grandparents, children, and services who attended. Thank you to all who gave their time to help parents to focus on ‘minding me’.
