Parenting Education: An Exemplary Program for Rural/Migrant Youth and Adults. Final Report.
Baum, Rosemere; And Others
Designed for use in a parenting education course for rural/migrant youth and adults, this parenting education learning kit consists of a coordinator's manual and bilingual instructional materials for seven course sessions. Issues addressed in the coordinator's manual include program content, program format, orientation for experienced parents, program delivery, and other possible program audiences. Covered in the individual sessions are communication skills, children's growth, discipline and children, preparing snacks, children's toys, play activities for children, and planning children's meals. The lessons, which are designed to be non-threatening to persons who are not comfortable in formal educational settings, rely on an experienced parent from the target group to function as the primary program delivery agent. Each session's lesson includes detailed instructions for the experienced parent, the text of the accompanying session tapes, illustrations for mounting on poster board, and parent take-home sheets. (A brief review of literature pertaining to parenthood education and a description of the development of these instructional materials are included.) (MN)
