Being a parent can be hard, that is why we have created a section especially for you. In these pages we hope to encourage peer-to-peer support for parents to share their worries, experiences and give advice.

If you would like to contribute your suggestions contact us at: parents.network@whizz-kidz.org.uk or head to the Whizz-Kidz Forum over on Mumsnet to continue the conversation!

In the hard times, it really helps to talk to someone in a similar situation.'
