The nurturing philosophy of non-violent parenting focuses on the development of empathy, self-worth, self-awareness, empowerment, discipline with dignity, appropriate family roles and age-appropriate expectations of children’s development. (From the Nurturing Parenting Programs website)
Nurturing Parenting explores appropriate expectations of children; developing empathy in parents and children; discipline with dignity; self-awareness and appropriate family roles; and empowerment and independence. This is done through various exercises, self-reflection and discussion.
The Nurturing Parenting Programs can be done in a group setting or individually
