The latest group of parents and carers successfully completed the council’s parenting course at Mayfield Primary School last week.
Around 25 people took part in the Raising Children with Confidence course which is organised by Midlothian Council.
Mayfield mother Tara Charters has two children. She said: “I get the impression some people might think there’s a bit of a stigma coming along to a parenting course as though it means you can’t cope with your child’s behaviour and you’re not a good parent.
“This course though is for everyone – it’s all about making all of us better parents.”
Around 250 parents and carers across Midlothian have already taken the course.
