is the Healthy Parenting Home Study Program?
Parenting is a learned
skill. Parents need resources that support positive parenting skills.
Healthy Parenting Home Study Program is designed for parents who prefer
to learn on their own. The correspondence style course is
useful for parents who live in locations where group parenting programs
are not offered.
Home Study Program is a program for expectant parents, caregivers, and parents of
children from infancy to age five. The program is a self-led study that
enables parents to expand their knowledge on parenting in the comfort
of their own home. Growth and development, physical and emotional needs,
and positive discipline strategies are some of the topics that are discussed
in this home study program.
The Healthy Parenting Home
Study Program, developed by Saskatchewan Health, was first piloted in January
1996 and revised in 1998. In June 2002, the Saskatchewan Prevention Institute was given copyright of the program.
There is no cost for those
who would like to participate in the program.
