This ten-session program improves adolescent girls' confidence, self-esteem and self-awareness, encouraging students to develop problem-solving strategies about peer pressure, sex, substance abuse, and being a parent.
Session 8: Being a Parent
The facilitator can outline the main aims of this session as follows:
- For students to become aware of key parenting skills which they may or may not have observed in their own parents/carers.
- For students to consider what skills they might like to use if they become parents or carers in the future.
- For students to understand the importance of using joint problem-solving skills, honour and empathy when experiencing difficult situations with their parents or carers.
Students are given the opportunity to problem-solve a range of difficult situations which some girls may be experiencing with their parents or carers, and the focus is again on prompting and promoting joint problem-solving skills, honour and empathy.
