What happens in the sessions?

Empowering Parents Empowering Communities courses are highly interactive, offering an engaging and creative blend of small and large group discussion, role play, demonstrations, information sharing and reflection.

Being a Parent covers topics such as:

  • Tools and strategies for positive parenting
  • Strategies for disciplining your children
