Guide for Choosing Parenting Curricula I: For Use by Community Coalitions, Community Leaders, Organizations, Parents, and Parenting Educators.
ParentLink, Columbia, MO.
Noting that the wealth of parenting curricula available poses a challenge to identifying the more appropriate curricula for a particular group, this guide is designed to enable more effective and efficient selection of curricula for parent education. The guide describes and evaluates 41 parenting programs and is divided into two major sections. The Quick Reference section provides a tabular delineation of parenting curricula and provides information regarding content, program format, media format, ratings of usefulness for general parent and professional use, and program length. The Narratives for Parenting Curricula section provides specific information on the curricula, including an abstract of its content, the cost, and ordering information. The basic requirements for programs selected were that they be congruent with existing human development principles and practices and that they not sanction psychological or physical abuse. Additional principles considered fundamental for included programs were that the programs appreciated diversity in family structure and function, ethnicity, and social class. Also included in the guide is a discussion of how to select a parenting program. (KB)
