Instructor's Manual for the Process of Parenting.
Brooks, Jane B.
Designed to help parents of all ages meet the basic tasks of parenting, this instructor's manual presents an outline for conducting parenting classes in which parents participate in in-depth discussions on a specified topic, exchanging ideas and sharing problems and possible solutions. Each class is organized in a similar format which includes a review of the previous class, discussion of a central parenting idea, experiential exercises, assignment of homework, and review of questions raised during the discussion. Class content focuses on such topics as deciding to become a parent; pregnancy, birth and delivery; strategies parents can use to deal with children's problems; the toddler years; the preschool years; elementary school years; the particular problems of adolescence; becoming a stepparent; living as a single parent; and dual-career parents.
