Parenting Now! Curriculum
The Parenting Now!® curriculum program is derived from the evidence-based Make Parenting a Pleasure® and is designed for parenting educators serving the universal population of parents with children ages 0-6.
The Parenting Now!® curriculum is derived from our nationally recognized, evidence-based curriculum Make Parenting A Pleasure®. The Parenting Now! curriculum is customized for the general population of parents with children ages 0-6, with more emphasis on child development and parenting skills such as emotion coaching and parental values.
Simplified to seven sessions, Parenting Now! is ideal for use in health care systems, community colleges and other organizations that wish to offer in-depth parenting education to the universal population of parents of young children. Parenting Now! is research-based and evidence-informed.
Designed by parenting educators for parenting educators, the Parenting Now!® curriculum’s facilitated approach to parent education helps parents achieve their goals for their families and respects the diversity of those goals. Parenting educators give the program high marks for its ease-of-use.
The Parenting Now!® curriculum is a seven-session turn-key program designed to be implemented with groups of parents. The discussion-focused sessions are straightforward and comprehensive, enabling the implementation of the program without a training requirement; however, comprehensive facilitator training is available through Parenting Now! that will benefit even experienced parenting educators.
Each session’s module booklet is formatted with icons that guide the parenting educator, identify key concepts and session agendas, and provide supply lists. Reproducible parent handouts are provided, along with forms for tracking attendance, collecting feedback, etc. The curriculum comes with three copies of our DVD that contains two conversation starter video clips excerpted from our Make Parenting a Pleasure® curriculum.
The Parenting Now!® curriculum is designed to utilize a group dialogue methodology which respects the skills of the parenting educator, empowers families and can be adapted to suit a wide range of environments and populations to improve family outcomes. The parenting educator acts as a guide to help the families discover unrealized parenting knowledge. This approach raises the confidence of parents as they discover that they already possess the capabilities necessary to achieve their family goals.
