Nobody’s Perfect: Engaging Dads in Parenting Programs
It is well known that dads who choose to be positively involved with their children can have a great impact on their children’s health and development. Participating in parenting programs, like Nobody’s Perfect, can help dads build on their parenting knowledge, skills and confidence. We also know that traditional ways of engaging moms do not necessarily work for dads. As practitioners, how best do we communicate information to dads and what is the best way to engage them? How do we keep them coming back for more? Join us as we explore the Nobody’s Perfect model from a fathers’ perspective. Through the webinar, we’ll help you to develop a tool belt loaded with tips and tricks to help dads build courage to jump into their parenting role with both feet!
Nobody’s Perfect: Facilitator Tip sheets
This webinar will be an opportunity to discuss the collection of tip sheets prepared by and in collaboration with NP stakeholders in Quebec. These seven tip sheets are tools to assist facilitators with their facilitation role and help them manage specific situations in such a way that the development and skills of all participating parents are fostered and supported. The tip sheets deal with the following topics: the role of fathers; dealing with overbearing and non-speaking participants in a group setting; single-parent families; crises that can arise during group workshops; participants with mental health issues; immigrant families; and language barriers. The tip sheets are available in English and French
