This workshop is divided in two parts, the first part explains what a parent needs to

provide children with to become resilient, and proactive selves. The second part explains how parents can achieve and implement the necessary tools to assist them in their task.

              Parenting can be wonderful and rewarding, but it can also be difficult and unpleasant. Most parents experience moments (or months or years) of feeling overwhelmed. There’s a lot of information out there about what we “should” do to raise “good” kids.

In reality, there are no guaranteed methods for ensuring we and our children will be happy, healthy, and successful in life. There is, however, plenty of research showing that parents can make a significant, positive difference through a number of simple approaches.

            Since the 1950s, Search Institute researchers have studied the effects of various influences in young people’s lives. They’ve found that developmentally children need to strive in relation to good things — like doing well in school, serving others, engaging in the community, and forming healthy habits.

            It’s important for grown-ups to help young people experience these things, but parents can’t do it alone. However, there are nine specific parenting strategies that help. Focusing on these nine research-based strategies provides guidance and direction in the uncertain world of parenting. And that’s something parents can feel good about.
