Breakthrough parenting programme offered to developing communities
Parents of children from birth to six years, in developing communities in Port Elizabeth are be offered the second in a series of FREE evidence based programme developed by Early Inspiration, which begins on September 12th at the East Cape Training Centre, Spondo Street.
The series of practical workshops has covered the basic needs of children, and the coming interactive session will focus on social development of children and play. The aim is to provide parents with knowledge and skills in relationship building for their children.
Jessica Baker who developed the skills-based programme following her Masters research in social work at Stellenbosch University, says of the new programme: “Building parent’s self-esteem is at the centre of the programme. By giving parents confidence, and knowledge we can encourage parents to build an attachment with their young child. Attachment bonds are reciprocal, emotional and physical connections between parents and children.”
She adds about the name of the programme: “The parents we met with gave us the name,Siphuhlisa Ulwazi Lwabazali. To them it is a very powerful phrase and gives them strength. Which is what we aim to do.”
The parenting programme builds on Early Inspiration’s work with teachers and early childhood development. Early Inspiration MD and founder Dr. Lauren Stretch comments saying: “Giving children a sense of belonging, showing them love and investing in their education supports children’s long-term successes and will in time eradicate poverty – one family at a time. ‘
“Parents want to do the best they can for their children, and a lot of parenting is instinctive, but by sharing experience, knowledge and skills, parents can have confidence in how they bring up their child.”
To take part, parents need to SMS their name of 082 583 1633 to book their place.
