Parent Coaching Classes
Our Programs and Classes
All program facilitators are Nationally Certified Master Trainers in the areas of:
FATHERHOOD and/or MOTHERHOOD and/or CO PARENTING
Some fathers need assistance and support to make the transition from adolescence to responsible parenthood and adulthood. The activities described in this curriculum are intended to help create a supportive environment in which fathers have: 1) the opportunity to spend time with other men dealing with similar issues and problems; 2) support when feeling scared, overwhelmed or depressed— emotions that men don’t usually get “permission” to express; and 3) access to professionals who serve as counselors, advocates for them.
Create a support group for mothers:
*Promote a positive identity for participants as women and mothers
*Enable young mothers to see the importance of sharing responsibility for the care and raising of their children
*Increase participants’ parenting skills
*Increase participants' ability to become effective co-parents
Co-parenting (sometimes called 'shared parenting') is when both parents work cooperatively as a team in peace and harmony with the common goal of raising their children to be productive, contributing members of society. This is not a skill that most people are taught to use, much less shown how to properly co-parent. This is also for parents that are getting along well and just are wanting to grow in their parenting skills. This workshop will give you some helpful tips to start learning to co-parent, or to improve if you're already experienced.. Many parents have found it helps to take co-parenting or shared parenting classes, both to learn new skills and to hear from other parents who are going through a similar situation.
DWP'S Parenting Coach Classes are meant to help parents and guardians IN THE FIELD. This means that our certified coaches will be coming into your homes for the benefit of the entire family; not just the parents. We like to emphasis that our Parent Coaches are nationally certified in their line of work. They are professionals in every sense of the word, so things such as respecting privacy is second nature to our coaches.
