The PCW was established to become a regional and leading conference. Our aim is to build and engage in progressive dialogue between the region’s parenting community and regional experts in the field of modern day parenting. We aim to focus on child development and to build connections to support parents and children.

Our second conference under the title of ‘Body & Soul’ will focus on two main themes; NUTRITION and BEHAVIOUR . Led by a panel of experts, we will explore and discuss in depth the issues of nutrition and Behaviour; Practical Food & Food labeling advice, Health related advice, Spine Health, conditions related to Immune System, Alternative Learning, Methods, Parenting by Connection. Do you feel frustrated when kids do not listen? Do your kids drag bed time? Sibling rivalry? And many other issues.

With sensitivity to today’s parenting challenges and the conflicting information available online, we seek to educate and reassure by opening discussion with experts in the field of parenting and child development.
