Effective Parenting Strategies Online Text-based Home Course (3 CE)
Some parents want to provide their children with the discipline, structure and autonomy to grow, but lack the knowledge or skills required. Parents may resort to inappropriate measures, either too permissive or running the risk of abuse. This course describes some general parenting styles which tend to describe in broad terms four styles of parenting. It also reviews changing parental demands as children grow. A wide variety of tools are described to promote effective parenting, particularly the positive ways to encourage, praise and model desired behavior. It also describes the issues and effective interventions for parenting challenges related to special needs children.
