Traditional parenting skills enhancement. This workshop is meant to educate parents in the Paul First Nation on family values and histories. What they are, and what they were for today’s parent.
Our first traditional parenting workshop will be held FEBRUARY -8/2007 from 9:00am-4:00pm.
The workshop will include Residential school effects on parenting today, a 45 minute video on the subject . The group involved will hear from the workshop facilitator as well, will begin a circle to address the problems that they see as major issues involving their parenting today.
Once the workshop is concluded, the facilitator will take in all of the feedback and focus on major areas to be worked on. Consecutively, the coordinator will take these issues and create 2 parenting circles which will meet weekly in the community.
One of these Group Circles will focus on Healing and will be derived directly from the initial parenting workshop identified issues.
The second weekly Group Circle will focus mainly as a Parenting Support Group, and each member of the group will share, with the common goal of healing other families.
