Tararua REAP is running the very popular Incredible Years Parenting Programme in Dannevirke starting February 2011.
Incredible Years is a 18 week parenting programme for parents of children aged 3-8 years. It involves weekly sessions of around two hours. Over the weeks, parents develop strategies to build positive relationships with their children and to manage problem behaviours.
Topics covered include:
how to play/spend special time together
praising and rewarding children
dealing with disobedience,
selectively using distractions, ignoring, time out and other penalties
helping children to problem-solve.
The programme spends a lot of time looking at how parents can develop good relationships with children, through play and spending time together.
