Confident Parents’ Academy programs offer the following:
The strategies taught have been tested and proven successful through the field of social and emotional learning in schools. Translated into the informal, messy context of family life, these practices can be adapted to tailor to your own family’s routine and culture.
Quite often, as parents, we are told what we shouldn’t be doing but rarely are guided to what we can do instead. The tools provided are intended to expand our options in any given challenging situation with our children and prepare them for successful relationships and contributions.
DATA COLLECTION, GOAL SETTING & PERSONAL REFLECTION
In the rushed frenzy of life, parents rarely have the luxury to reflect on their daily lives. Simple methods will be taught to record your interactions for a brief time so that you have an accurate picture of your own habits and patterns and how they are impacting your children. Raise your own self-awareness and you will open the door to positive changes. Guided reflections can be kept personal or shared with a partner or friend as you uncover what you want for your own development and what your hopes and dreams are for you and your children.
Confident parents raise confident kids!
