We aim to empower and impact more women and children worldwide with the tools of development, as Kofi Annan said “there is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of women”. In the light of the above, as part of our continuous strategic plans of ensuring children stay safe with their birth families and supporting of African and African- Caribbean families within the UK, Save the Woman in partnership with Destiny Creations C.I.C, have put together Africentric Parenting Skills Course 201, which scheduled to be launched on Saturday 12th June 2021.
Special thanks to Together Middlesbrough and Cleveland, who had recently funded one of the cohorts of the Save The Woman’s Africentric Parenting Skills Course. We look forward to partnering with as many interest groups and organisations, to offer parents generous support services and strengthen families.
Many of us were erroneously made to believe that parenting has no manual until we arrived here and noticed that the reason why many families come into contact with child protection and safeguarding issues are very minor issues.
Some of those issues making up key areas of the programme include:
• The Teen brain – recognising changes taking place during teenage years.
• The link between behaviour and communicating difficult feelings.
• Maintaining your relationship with good communication.
• Understanding risk taking behaviour.
• How to negotiate and reduce conflict.
• Keeping Teens safe.
