Faces of parenting

Faces of parenting

Following a nation-wide search that attracted entries from parents right across Wales, four families have been named as the new faces of the Parenting. Give it time campaign.

The families, from across Wales - Rhydyfelin, Rhyl, Newport and Swansea - were selected by a panel of parenting experts from more than 200 entries to the online competition. The chosen families will be sharing their personal experiences of the joys and challenges of bringing up a young family, in the hope that other parents can benefit from their stories.

Over the next few months, people will get to know the families, through reading their own accounts of life as parents of young children, as well as photographs, videos and posts on this website and on our Facebook page.
