Parenting Education Research and Issues Related Resources Child Discipline Series My Child Has a Problem Parent education has evolved from a didactic teaching model to a relationship and support model. In my work as an Intensive Family Services counselor, I am able to design an individualized parenting skills training for each client. To enhance the effectiveness of group training, parent educators may include support elements in their program. Three Elements of an Effective Parent Education Program
  • Direct Instruction Who is your audience? What are your goals for the program? With these questions in mind, take a look at the various structured programs. There are some good-looking programs available. Order some demo packs or introductory materials to assess the content. Is is research-based? Does it fit your audience?
