Positive Parenting 1.0

Over the course of eight weeks parents will have the opportunity to explore parenting in a variety of interactive activities that are focused on expanding self-awareness and developing a safe and supportive environment for the positive development of children. The course will begin with a look at what their own beliefs and values are, explore tradition and family customs (unspoken "rules"), and a look at family systems: who the parent is within the role they play in the family. In the middle of the course we will explore the importance of relationships; what is love and how do we as parents express love to our children. Finally, the course will close with examples of parenting that are drawn from the participants themselves and they begin to lead their own discussions on positive parenting techniques.
