Our approach is simple: we understand that parenting is never easy and while many parents are trying to teach their children to fly, they are functioning with broken wings themselves. In our 8 week program we help parents understand what it means to parent authentically or the healthy parenting.
"Authentic parenting" is a transformation process that requires parents to push past all struggles and misunderstandings of former parenting experiences and allows them to learn new skills, instill knowledge and empowerment training to emerge into a new creature aka an "authentic parent".
Introduction – Broken Wings: Our training session begins with a five question survey to gauge where each parent is and to help him or her understand what “authentic parenting” is. After the survey, we elaborate on what “broken wings” means and let them know that, by the end of the program, each will receive new wings to fly along with a certificate of completion.
1. The Child in Me: This interactive session reveals how one’s parenting has impacted their child rearing habits and methods.
2.Conquering the Giant: This session provides hands on examples of parent-child conflict at home and school and how to deal with a strong willed child.
3. My Own Story: This hands on, creative writing workshop will allow parents and children to use pictures, poems and letters to write their own story. The culmination of this project will result in a manuscript or paperback book being produced to represent each family. Parents will receive the printed form upon graduation of the course.
