The Parent Connection contains 12 complete lesson plans focused on building parenting strengths in parents of young children, newborn to age 5. Each lesson teaches parents key concepts of parenting and child development in a fun group setting. In most lessons parents and children learn together.

Lesson topics incorporate all aspects of family life: parental self-care, family finance, nutrition, appreciating family strengths, understanding over-indulgence, effective communication, talking and reading, getting children ready for kindergarten, and learning together in the kitchen, car, or great outdoors.

Written by experienced parent educators, the lessons are built on a foundation of research findings about children and families. Teaching strategies are based on research in adult education to maximize adult learning.

The Parent Connection CD comes with:
  • 12 lesson plans
  • PowerPoint slides and narratives
  • Activities
  • Handouts
  • Evaluation tools
  • Teacher's guide to adult learning
Editors: Harriet Shaklee and Diane Demarest
