Parenting programs can improve parent-child interactions by helping parents to better anticipate their children’s developmental changes, carry out child-rearing responsibilities and provide early learning experiences.
Successful parenting programs:
cover many factors, such as consistent caregiving, positive discipline and parental well-being;
address specific types of child behaviour or target specific developmental transitions.
Parents want to do the best they can for their children – parenting programs can help them maximize their ability to do this.
