What we do . Real Talk

Real Talk

A  locally developed programme to help bring out the best in parents, families, individuals and groups by supporting them to connect the dots and create positive change.

Real Talk is a free, 6-week parenting course for parents, caregivers and whānau, based at Wesley Waitangirua.

We’ve worked with the local community to develop a parenting programme that meets the needs of parents, caregivers and whānau living in the Porirua area. Participants meet weekly for 6 weeks to listen, share and learn from each other.

Real Talk sessions are guided by two skilled tutors and cover a range of topics, including the difference between discipline and punishment, and the importance of praising good behaviour rather than focusing on bad behaviour.

Real Talk is being funded by a grant from the JR McKenzie Trust to help ensure children in eastern Porirua have happy, healthy childhoods and their parents, carers and extended whanau experience being part of a caring and supportive community.
