Parenting Skills Training

spiral2grow Marriage Family Therapy created an innovative program designed to empower parents to be the best they can be in parenting their children. We have built a customized, skills based parenting training program to meet the specific needs of families.

Parenting and child education are one of the most important issues faced by our society when it comes to health in general and specifically mental health and well-being. Issues such as teenage sexuality and pregnancy, substance abuse, school issues (including learning disability), ADHD, child abuse, social engagement, emotional maturity, underachievement, bullying, social media and technology challenges, addictions, juvenile crime and mental illness are only few important subjects that parents and children are challenged by.

Families don’t come with a parenting manual and unfortunately there is not schools for being a parent. Yet, parenting requires a multitude of skills and takes time to educate and would probably always work in progress.

Healthy parenting skills is what separate responsible parents from those who are less serious. Good parents makes conscious effort to educate themselves and build the necessary skills to raise their children to gain the skills they need to be independent and successful in life. They empower them to become mature adult with value and characters that allow them to grow mentally, socially and professionally and ultimately grow into a responsible and caring adult.

However, lack of good parenting or failing to provide secure attachment to the children become detrimental to children’ well-being. These children are left without the key foundation for healthy development and are at risk for low self-esteem, impulsivity and lack of self control, aggressive behavior, lack of social skills, lack of empathy and compassion.

Effective parenting starts with openness and desire to evaluate our parental abilities and skills. It is common for a successful parents to adapt certain skills to work better with their children different and build new ones.
