E-Parenting

 

Introduction:  
  As a parent educator, our primary goal is to promote parental empathy and attachment. Attachment is a deep enduring relationship, between a child and a parent/caregiver, beginning in the early years of life that influences: feelings about self; relationships with others; brain development; sense of world; and physical health and growth. Parental empathy is the ability to accurately understand what a child is experiencing/feeling and responding in ways that support the childs growing sense of self and self-regulation
Task:  
  In what ways can we, or what resources can we use to, engage overburden families in learning about these topics? Using the curriculum and research articles, determine the best-practice for engaging parents in empathetic parenting and increasing positive attachment for social emotional development.
Process:  
  Develop a lesson plan for your families for a month to address empathy and attachment. Make sure to include what you will do when your families are disengaged.
