Parenting education may be defined as any conscious and deliberate effort made to facilitate parents to be effective in child- rearing. It promotes positive parenting practices such as empathetic communication, inculcating discipline and family routines that help in positive growth of a child.
The parenting education programs have a wide array of approaches right from behaviour management to relationship enhancement. These courses focus on enhancing parenting practices and behaviours such as developing and practicing positive discipline techniques, learning age-appropriate child development skills and promoting positive parent-child relationships. Such programs and resources have been useful in supporting parents by strengthening parenting skills. The parenting education programs offer support and education that can address all sorts of problems and make parenting easier, more enjoyable and can boost a child’s ability to thrive.
Parenting, for many, is the most important and challenging job to ever have. It is a role that gets little recognition yet demands deep involvement. It is an opportunity for parents and other primary care-givers like foster parents, adoptive parents and grandparents to learn pro tips and robust strategies to engage with their children efficiently and enjoy being with them. It also provides a platform to engage with other parents who might have similar issues with their children. This allows scope to discuss and figure out possible and probable solutions.
In earlier times, due to joint family structures, skills, routines and values were passed from generation to generation and parents could also rely on networks of support to help them parent their child. However, today, due to many inevitable circumstances, a nuclear family culture prevails in the society. Many parents and families stay isolated away from their social network of extended families or relatives and are raising children in silos. In the present times it has become all the more important for children to become socially competent to sustain in the competitive world. So, it has become quite challenging for parents to figure out everything on their own.
Today’s parents are more concerned about their child’s overall personality development. To ensure this, they invest in many extra-curricular activities like yoga or martial art classes, music/dance classes and so on. They even take out children to dine out or for a vacation to boost their emotional health. On similar lines, parenting classes are an investment to ensure our children’s ability to build healthy relationships and become great parents themselves.
