effective parenting.In this workshop, parents and other caregivers learn 
how to create more satisfying and productive relationships in the 
family.The program teaches specific and practical skills that parents need 
and will use in their daily interaction with their children.After the 
workshop, parents need and will use in their daily interaction with their 
children.After the workshop, parents may begin to feel more confident and

their new skills at home, they will hopefully be able to recapture and 
continue to enjoy this significant role which every parent truly values.
