Parent Mentoring

Parent mentoring forms part of our interventions for young people who offend.   As part of a wraparound service for young people who offend, Le Chéile offers parent mentoring to parents of young people involved with Probation, working with other family members to support positive change for the young person.

The aim of parent mentoring is to offer support, a listening ear and to provide some help in managing their child’s offending behaviour.  Together with their mentor, parents can build their confidence in parenting, work on parenting issues and stress management.

Parent mentors are a non-judgemental support to help a parent challenge their young person’s behaviour, and develop their own parenting skills.
