Successful Parenting: Facilitator's Guide: Parts 1-4.
Taylor, Barbara Lynn
Parenting is the toughest job there is, and yet, there is very little training. Most parent their children by the methods their parents used. Parenting involves skills that must be learned. Even among good parents there is always room for improvement. This series of workshops is designed for persons who want to be better parents or guardians. Four facilitator's guides cover four parts of the Successful Parenting workshop. Each guide is designed to be used in tandem with a video. Guides include notes to facilitators regarding use of the booklet, a list of materials required to conduct a workshop, suggested time frame for a one-hour workshop, suggested time frame for a two-hour workshop, and suggestions for the facilitator. Each step of the process is outlined and includes things for the facilitator to say, possible audience reaction, and "stage directions." The four guides are titled: (1) Self-Esteem is the Key; (2) Communication is Crucial; (3) Discipline Makes the Difference; and (4) School Success Takes Teamwork. (JBJ)
