PARENT SUPPORT

I received information (below) regarding the launch of Passage, a ‘by-parents-for-parents’ initiative for English-speakers in Luxembourg. The event is being held on Wednesday 18 March at 10am at the Lycée Michel Lucius, and we have been invited to send a representative. It strikes me that a parent representative would be appropriate here — any offers? See the entire message below, and let me know if you’d like to attend — and any suggestions on how we might usefully follow up.

Thanks,

Fr Ed

Passage Website Launch: Press Conference Invitation
Please join us on Wednesday 18th March at 10 am
at the Lycée Michel Lucius

” Parenting is a challenging job wherever you are in the world.
In Luxembourg many parents are doing this without extended family
support. We recognize the need to provide a forum for this
community to exchange information, advice and support.”
What is Passage?

Passage, the Parent Support Group for the English speaking community in Luxembourg, are launching their long-awaited website on Wednesday March 18th.

The group, voluntarily run by parents for parents, has been operating for over 2 years providing a Support Group and seminars for parents around the challenges of modern day parenting. They also facilitate a Professionals Network for anyone working in the field of education, health or child development in Luxembourg.

The aim of the website is to be a ‘living’ resource for the growing international community of parents who would like information, advice or signposting in English. The intention is to raise awareness of the many children and parent-centered services in Luxembourg, whilst bringing together information and advice regarding issues of interest to parents.

At the heart of the website is the ‘Rites of Passage section that takes parents on a developmental journey from conception to children leaving home.

The group, which has so far been funded by generous Friends of Passage and a ‘Car-boot sale’, hope to raise funds to keep providing and developing services like the upcoming ‘Mindfulness for Parents’ (Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy) course that starts on Thursday 23rd April.
