Parent/educational counselling
Free advice on parenting issues

For students with children and for parents of the daycare centers of the Studierendenwerk, we offer free counseling on parenting issues and challenges of everyday organization. At regular intervals, our family counselor also offers parenting courses in small groups. Topics include: 

  • Awareness of one's own parenting behavior 
  • Stimulating and testing new ways of dealing with children 
  • Setting rules with children - this is how it works 
  • Dealing with feelings 
  • and other topics of upbringing and family life that you determine.

The exchange among the participants is an essential element of the courses. The goal of the counseling is to increase your own parenting skills and to be able to act confidently and calmly in challenging situations.

We are happy to help you
