Parents get ‘toolbox’ to deal with kids

2016-11-29 06:01

Parents are now better equipped to deal with the changes in modern parenting.

The Parent Centre hosted a seven-week workshop at the Portland Community Centre that finished last Tuesday.

The workshop content included understanding child behaviour, children’s feelings, children’s self esteem, assertions and engaging cooperation, effective discipline, problem-solving and values.

In the last session the 20 parents who attended the workshop were asked to share what they had learned.

The facilitators thanked the participants for “showing a willingness to change and improve their children’s lives”.

The parents all agreed that the workshop was useful and informative and some of the skills they implemented had worked.

The attendees also received certificates and a “toolbox” to refer to in future.
