Support groups for 'dad' skills

A series of free support groups for fathers who would like to improve their parenting skills will start in Dublin next month.

The groups are organised by Parentline, the voluntary organisation which provides advice and a helpline (1890 927277) for parents.

Chief executive Rita O'Reilly said fathers have a crucial influence on their child's development.

The support groups will start on Wednesday, October 5, at 7.30pm in Carmichael Centre, North Brunswick St, Dublin 7. Tel: 01-8787230 or email info@parentline.ie for more information.
