Our Tier 1 curriculum is titled Positive Parenting. The bulk of the curriculum is based on Glen Latham’s Power of Positive Parenting.
The workshop is divided into three classes: Be Fair, Be Friendly, and Be Firm.
In the “Be Fair” class, parents and caregivers will identify personal values relating to their children and family, will learn about child development, communication, how to set up supportive environments, and how to set appropriate expectations for their children.
In the “Be Friendly” class, parents and caregivers will be given tips on how to foster more positive interactions with their children, and how to reward appropriate behaviors, making them more likely in the future.
In the “Be Firm” class, parents and caregivers will learn about why challenging behavior happens, and how to provide effective discipline following inappropriate behavior.
