Skills4Parents: Empowering families through the development of positive parenting skills

COFACE and the Skills4Parents project partners have developed a number of resources for parents, which have also been referenced in a recent statement of the Alliance for Investing in Children.

The resources include the following:

  • A Learning Guide for Parents: Empowering families through the development of positive parenting skills

Developed through the expertise of 6 organisations and founded on values of human rights, non-discrimination, social inclusion, gender equality, intergenerational solidarity and empowerment of all families, the Skills4Parents Learning Guide for parents contains learning packages to boost parenting skills in five areas: Communication, Empowerment, Mediation, Problem-Solving, and Digital. The guide adopts a self-learning approach, allowing all learning parents to choose the content (tips, case studies, exercises) that they need to tackle the parenting challenges they are encountering at their own pace. All learning packages follow a self-learning approach enabling learning parents to craft their individual experience and follow it at their own pace.

  • A Handbook for professionals

The Handbook contains a learning plan for each of the 5 packages to use as an example. Of course, this is just one of the ways for educators to use the learning guide for parents. But there are also tips for professionals working with parents and families on how to be more inclusive and how to design training that will resonate with different target audiences, including families in vulnerable situations. As professionals being in contact with parents and families, we are delighted to be able to promote the Skill4Parents resources with you as we are sure that you will find them useful.

  • An Online Hub

The multilingual Hub hosts the five Learning Packages for parents which include articles, case studies, videos, digital resources, quizzes etc, as well as the Handbook for professionals. The aim is also to use this hub to further build a European community for parent empowerment, helping parents and professionals connect across countries. Hub.skills4parents.eu
