PARISH LIBRARY AND CHILD ADVOCACY SERVICES HOSTING PARENTING PROGRAM

Post Date:December 19, 2017 1:52 p.m.
The St. Charles Parish Library and Child Advocacy Services are partnering to present the Triple P Positive Parenting Program for parents of children ages birth to 12.

Triple P is designed to give parents simple and practical strategies that they can adapt to suit their own values, beliefs, and needs to raise confident and healthy children. Parents will learn how to encourage behaviors they like, deal with problem behaviors, become more confident as a parent, be realistic about parenting, and take care of themselves.

There are three seminars in the Triple P series. Participants can attend all three or only the ones that interest them. Each seminar will last approximately 90 minutes, with time at the end for any questions. There is no homework and no follow up.

Angela Golden, Prevention Services Coordinator for Child Advocacy Services, will present the seminars.

“The Power of Positive Parenting” will take place Wednesday, January 17 at 6 p.m. This seminar is for every parent who has wondered, “Why does my child do that?” It will help parents understand the reasons why children do what they do so that they can positively guide their behavior.

“Raising Confident, Competent Children” will take place Wednesday, January 24 at 6 p.m. During this session, parents will find ways to help their child become confident and successful by sharing ways to encourage children to be respectful and considerate, get along with others, feel good about themselves, and become independent problem solvers.

“Raising Resilient Children” will take place Wednesday, January 31 at 6 p.m. Parents will learn ways to help their child manage positive and negative emotions to be able to cope with disappointment and handle stressful situations in a healthy way.

Registration is requested. Register online at www.bit.ly/scpltriplep or by calling the staff at the West Regional Library at 985-785-8471.
