Online Parenting Workshops Available Soon from The Science of Parenting

Research conducted by Zero to Three (2016) revealed that parents are seeking information and support to improve their parenting skills. A majority of parents are motivated to learn more strategies, but almost half of them feel they are lacking the necessary support during stressful times. In response to this need, the Science of Parenting team from Iowa State University is offering online workshops to help parents learn effective strategies.

The workshops scheduled for May cover a range of topics including Understanding Research and Reality, Understanding Temperament, Children’s Ages and Parenting Stages, and Positive Discipline. These workshops aim to provide research-based information that can be applied to each family’s unique circumstances.

The first workshop, Understanding Research and Reality, will focus on connecting research findings to practical parenting strategies. This workshop is also approved for foster parent credit hours. The second workshop, Understanding Temperament, will explore how to navigate the unique traits of children. The third workshop, Children’s Ages and Parenting Stages, will help parents gain a better understanding of child development. The final workshop, Positive Discipline, will address how parents can effectively manage their child’s behavior using positive discipline techniques.

Participants can attend these workshops for free, but are encouraged to register in advance on the Science of Parenting website to receive the class link and materials for each workshop. By providing accessible resources and support, the Science of Parenting team hopes to empower parents with the knowledge and tools they need to navigate the challenges of parenthood.
