Carefree Kids is looking to set up a new course for teenage boys and girls aimed at: ‘Meeting the emotional needs of your future babies, children and yourselves as parents’ and is looking for ways to fund the course. The course will be school based.
Some of the problems experienced by the children whom we help through our therapeutic work are caused by poor parenting.
There is no comprehensive preparation for all parents about the realities of parenthood, especially the emotional aspects. It therefore makes sense to try to prepare young people in good time in ways which they will always remember. Read more about the Early intervention course.
Carefree Kids is a children’s charity based in Waltham Forest, London and working in Waltham Forest and neighbouring boroughs.
Since 2004 we have been providing emotional support to children, teenagers and their parents and carers.
We use non-directive therapeutic play, art therapy, dramatherapy and dance/movement therapy to help release troubling emotions that may be difficult to communicate verbally or in other ways.
