Parent forum background

As migrant parents, there are several challenges that we face in the process of integrating into this country. We come from a mixture of backgrounds which include; polygamous, monogynous and patriarchal families. These backgrounds have shaped who we are and have influenced our parenting abilities/skills in both positive and negative ways.

Integrating into a new country can be a challenge, particularly when raising children with a combination of our own cultural values and norms, whilst trying to embrace the values of the country we now reside in, this is where the challenge lies, and we hope to try and bridge this gap.

our Aims

  • Look at the different challenges facing parenting today.
  • Find solutions, educate and support parents on how to minimize or prevent these challenges.
  • Create awareness.
  • Early intervention and sign post where necessary.

Challenges

  • Cultural differences; language, identity, religion, traditions etc.
  • Impact of work on the ability to parent effectively.
  • The influence of social media/technology on parenting,
  • Family breakdown – domestic violence, divorce, separation.
  • Knife crime, Drugs and gang lifestyle.
  • Physical health problems.
