On Promoting Good Parenting Practices: Another service provided by Baha'i communities


Dear Friends 

These are 2 workshops for this Saturday eve. Feel free to call friends, contacts, etc.
We hope this will be the first in a series -both for parents and youth :-)

Warm  Greetings, 

I am particularly pleased to see the Baha'i friends offering a workshop on parenting. Teaching behavior management skills to parents in one of the things I do for a living. The need is great. The benefits are lifelong. -gw

Parents are guided to praise wanted behaviors, like sharing, and to ignore unwanted or annoying behaviors, such as whining (unless the behaviors are destructive or dangerous). In addition, parents are taught to avoid criticisms or negative words—such as “no,” “don’t,” “stop,” or “quit”—and instead concentrate on positive directions.
