Stopping Child Abuse Before It Begins: Teaching Children Parenting Skills (Workshop 18)
This workshop provides a "hands-on," activity-based opportunity for participants to learn how parenting programs for children can be developed, implemented, evaluated, and replicated. Focus is on the Parents Under Construction program, which has as its primary goal to train children from preschool to the twelfth grade in child development and positive parenting skills in order to reduce the incidence of child abuse in future generations. If children learn throughout their school careers information on child development and positive discipline techniques, they are more likely to reject ignorant or abusive childrearing techniques when they become parents.
