National Parents Week 2019
23rd – 29th September

Being a parent is great but it’s not always easy; it’s ok to ask for help

National Parents Week 2019 is from Monday 23rd to Sunday 29th September.  During National Parents Week we want to make parents aware that Parentline is there for them when they need support, information and guidance.

The theme for National Parents Week is: It’s OK to ask for help! We want to encourage parents to look for support whenever they need it.

Parents can google and will often find information but there is nothing like talking to a person who is there to give all the time and space needed to hear your story and explore your situation.

Parentline is a helpline for parents.  Somewhere to pick up the phone and talk to a trained facilitator who will offer a sympathetic ear; in confidence and who won’t judge (either parent or child). No matter how big or small the problem Parentline will give support, information and guidance.

The helpline is open Monday to Thursday from 10 a.m. – 9 p.m. and Friday from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.  It is free and no appointment is necessary – just call 1890 927277 or 01 8733500.

Whatever the issue – It’s OK to ask for help.
