Activities are for children whose parents or guardians are participating in the 16-week Nurturing Parenting Program®.There are activities for each of the 16 group sessions. Each session follows a similar format: Welcome Time, Circle Time, Family Nurturing Time, Group Time, Learning Center Time and Closing. Trained professionals in the Nurturing Parenting Program® facilitate children’s classes.
Parents and their children attend separate sessions that meet concurrently. Parents learn about Nurturing Parenting skills and ways to promote discipline and communication. Children’s activities help children express their feelings, and include strategies for building self-worth and personal power.
