PIP: Traditional Parenting
October 2 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Positive Indian Parenting is an eight week course focusing on traditional and culturally specific parenting practices and values. We will explore attitudes in a variety of traditional child-rearing ways and apply them to values and challenges of modern parenting skills.
Session 1: Traditional Parenting
This session Introduces the idea that historical Indian childrearing practices have a great deal to teach us as parents today. It explores generally what some old practices were and why they are important. Further, the parents are asked to discuss where they learned to parent and how many of the old ways have been lost.
In this session parents will:
- come to know that Indian culture has a strong heritage of positive parenting
- recognize where they have learned to parent
- understand how some of the old ways have been lost
- begin to make choices about what kind of parenting they want to use, and what kind of parents they want their children to become
Dinner and childcare are provided.
