Parenting seminars, frequently taught by experienced fathers who bring their own babies to class, that help to prepare expectant fathers for their parenting role. The workshops provide opportunities to discuss a variety of issues with "veteran" dads such as bonding with the baby, balancing work and time spent with the baby, stretching their income, developing a parenting team, supporting the needs of a new mom, dealing with advice and criticism from relatives, and managing stress and health and safety issues; and include opportunities to practice feeding and burping a baby, changing diapers, holding and comforting a baby, playing with a baby, soothing a crying baby and other tasks related to parenting a newborn. Some programs focus on the parenting needs of a particular ethnic group, deal with cultural issues related to fatherhood and may be available in a language other than English.
PH-6100.6800Parenting Skills Classes Definition
Programs that teach skills that enable parents to deal constructively and consistently with a broad spectrum of child rearing problems which may include sibling rivalry; school behavior and performance; poor self-esteem; shyness; drug use; sexual promiscuity; and the whole range of negative, acting-out behaviors including whining, temper tantrums, disobedience, insolence and destructiveness. Some parenting skills development programs utilize a step-by-step approach for managing specific problems and may incorporate application at home of techniques that were discussed and practiced in the classroom setting. Other programs may offer participatory family workshops which provide opportunities for parents and children to learn and practice methods for dealing with one another under the guidance of a trained facilitator. Most training programs teach the parent a particular way of talking and relating to their children that reinforces positive behaviors and communication and decreases negative behaviors while supporting the development of a relationship that is built on fairness, mutual caring and respect.
