Triple P Seminar - Positive Parenting Program
This 4 hour training is offered to all parents, grandparents and caregivers of young children. It provides participants with tips sheets to refer to at home. This seminar will cover the following topics:
- Raising Resilient Children - One of the most important tasks of parenthood is helping children learn to deal with their emotions. All children experience periods of stress in their lives and need the emotional skills to deal with it. Children’s emotional resilience and ability to cope with their feelings is important for their long-term happiness, well-being and success in life. Emotional resilience involves six key skills: recognizing and accepting feelings, expressing feelings appropriately, having a positive outlook, developing effective ways of coping, being able to deal with negative feelings, and being able to manage stressful life events.
- The Power of Positive Parenting - Children of all ages need a safe, secure and loving environment to flourish. Positive parenting is an effective approach to raising children that emphasizes the positive. It involves creating a family environment that is loving, supportive and predictable. This is important in raising healthy, well-adjusting children with the skills and confidence to succeed at school and in relationships with others. Positive parenting reduces the stress of parenting and makes parenting more rewarding and enjoyable.
- Raising Confident and Competent Children - The values, skills and behaviors to encourage in children are the choice of every individual parent. However, some core skills are important. Children are more likely to be confident, succeed at school and get along with others when they develop certain life skills. These life skills include being respectful and considerate, communicating well with others, having a healthy self-esteem, being a good problem solver, and becoming independent and able to do things for themselves.
