Parenting Education Supplement for Family and Career Transitions Resource Guide.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Vocational and Career Education.
This guide, which was developed to assist instructors of several Ohio programs for special adult audiences (including programs for displaced homemakers, dislocated workers, single parents who are school dropouts, and adults needing help coordinating work and family roles), contains a series of curriculum modules devoted to selected aspects of parenting that are especially relevant to adults involved in career and family transitions. The modules are designed not as a parenting program to be taught from beginning to end but rather as a resource for planning and conducting learning activities with parents. The following topics are covered in the 16 modules: seeking empowerment as a parent (accepting the responsibilities of parenting, adjusting to parenthood, enhancing self-esteem, extending love and caring, communicating with children, and guiding children); meeting children's developmental needs (understanding levels of development and meeting play, nutritional, health/wellness, and safety needs); and parenting in families and communities (understanding families' influence on parenting, dealing with special parenting circumstances, understanding the shared responsibility between families and society, utilizing community resources, and balancing working and parenting). Each module includes some/all of the following: intended outcomes; concepts and process skill(s) and strategies to teach each concept; student handouts; and learning activities. (MN)
