Through our Master Parent Teacher Series, Our Team, will come together to teach and support the parent. Starting in August 2016, we will do a series of hands-on workshops and online meetings to help build the Master Parent Teacher.
We plan to walk with you through whichever program you choose so that as a parent, you will help your child build competence to¹:
- Be a Skillful Planner - Plan activities and experiences that support young people's growth and development.
- Be a Personal Trainer - Choose and facilitate experiences that build young people's abilities.
- Be Strengths-Based - Recognize, draw out and build upon young people's strengths.
- Empower the Young Person - Nurture young people's sense of self and independence.
- Facilitate Personal Mastery of Skillsets and Mindsets - Provide the space and time young people need to observe, develop, and demonstrate skillsets and mindsets.
- Make Real World Connections - Show young people how activities and experiences connect to the real world.
- Model What You Want - Be a positive example for young people by modeling what you expect from them.
- Provide Positive Challenges - Push young people to keep growing by offering opportunities to get out of their comfort zone, work hard and try something new.
- Provide Resources - Give young people access to information, tools, and supports they need.
- Provide Structure - Establish clear, consistent boundaries and a sense of predictability.
It's about the end result. Will your student be ready for their own future? Will they be able to say:
- I can get and stay healthy physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
- I can solve problems and make decisions about the intellectual, social, moral and emotional issues and problems I face.
- I can relate to others and the world by forming, managing and sustaining my relationships.
- I can use insights to grow and develop in each stage of life.
- I can work and stay focused in each stage of life.
- I can think and create in ways that help me navigate and experience life.
- I can persist through struggles and maintain hope no matter my challenges.
- I can engage with people and places by being present and engaging in meaningful, real and honest ways.
- I can apply learning in the real world to meet life demands.
- I can feel and express emotion appropriately and as a way to connect with others.
