Parenting is one of the most difficult tasks that we face. While most of us receive training in our occupations, we receive little guidance on how to be a parent and nurture development in our children. Parents are the primary change agent in their children’s development and behavior. Our family training program focuses on the parent-child relationship. Using evidence based principles, parents are coached through 5 skill-building exercises. These exercises provide parents with an opportunity to practice attending to socially desired behaviors, while learning how to re-direct and give less attention to unwanted behaviors. This positive parenting approach, centered on play and parent-child bonding, encourages social-emotional development, listening skills, learning and play skills.
