For many years, author and former Governor of Mountjoy John Lonergan has spoken widely on the topic of parenting, discussing both the challenges and the rewards. He passionately believes that parenting is by far the most difficult and complex task anyone will ever undertake in their life.
“I know of no other task that an adult will undertake in life that is as demanding, challenging, responsible, complicated and never-ending as parenting … [but], like the vast majority of parents, I had no real preparation for parenthood and received no training or direct help during the whole process.” – J Lonergan
On the night, John will be sharing his insights from years of professional and personal experience, as a father and grandfather on how Parents can guide and nurture their child to become mature, capable and independent especially during those tricky teenage years!!!
All are welcome and tickets @ €7 will be available at the door on the night.
