“…children can never have grown-up feelings until
they have been allowed to do the growing.”
To make a difference in the lives of your children, you need to give them more than love. You need parenting skills to guide your children effectively in everyday situations.
Situational Parenting formally extends the application of the Situational Leadership® Model from the conference room table to the kitchen table. Organizations are realizing that family stress can have serious work-related consequences including: absenteeism, decreased performance and turnover. Numerous work-life studies yield a consistent message: effective parents make better employees. Investing in employee personal development pays off in their professional performance.
More than a compilation of tips and tricks for good parenting, Situational Parenting provides participants with a new model for understanding a child’s unique readiness level for a variety of everyday tasks. Based on the child’s readiness level, parents then learn how to adapt their own style to more positively influence the child.
This innovative course is designed to enhance your parenting skills. Participants learn a unique approach to home life that helps parents relate more effectively with their children in everyday situations like household chores, grades, and swimming lessons.
Recognizing that a child’s ability, or readiness level, can vary from task to task helps adults communicate more effectively. As children grow and learn new things their rate of advancement may differ. Where one new task might come easily and rapidly another task might require extra effort, concentration and trial. Adults able to recognize this and adapt their interactive style and method of communication increase their effectiveness dealing with children overall.
Unique features of the Situational Parenting® program include the ParentSelf assessment which is a self-scored questionnaire designed to provide feedback on current parenting behaviors. The Parent Other assessment is available for partners to evaluate and give feedback on each other’s styles. The Situational Simulator is a fast paced game to test learning under “real world” circumstances. Wrapping up the training program with the Parent Promises solidifies an action plan to change parenting behavior. It also helps create alignment with other parenting partners.
