NPC Annual Conference

The NPC Annual Conference will be taking place on the 28th of May 2016 in the National College of Ireland, Dublin 1.

The title and theme of this year’s conference will be Ready, Steady, Learn - Parents supporting their Children’s Healthy Learning. 

Children need to be ready to learn, therefore this conference will encompass how parents can actively support their children’s mental (emotional), physical (nutritional) and creative health.

The Keynote Speaker will be Shane Martin, a leading Psychologist within the area of education. Shane’s presentation will be POSITIVE PARENTING: Harnessing Strengths within Children.
We all want children to grow into happy adults; but sometimes we feel as though we have little real influence over them as they grow older. New scientific research reveals that happiness can be cultivated within the home, school and community and that parenting styles and practices have a tremendous effect on children’s emotional outlook on life. By promoting some basic positive traits and harnessing their inner strengths we can encourage our children to have a more positive view of self, others and the world. Parenting can be challenging but also a positive and fulfilling experience. We need to work at being more ‘positive’ in our approach. 

Further information will follow shortly. If you would like to register for conference please click here.  Don’t forget to save the date and pass this information on to all parents in your child’s school. ADMISSION FREE! All parents welcome
