Cana is offering parenting courses based on positive parenting principles with the aim of improving and strengthening child-adult-family-community relationships for the wellness of all.
What do we believe in?
Our therapeutic work with clients informs us that parenting / child-care giving is an extremely rewarding yet demanding and unique experience requiring countless skills. Accordingly, parents / child-caregivers research information regularly to support their infinite care-giving needs in hopes of finding suitable solutions for their families and / or the children / adolescents they care for. However, we also notice how caring and well-intentioned parents / child-caregivers often consult inaccurate sources and / or lack the know-how to apply findings to their unique circumstances. We therefore felt compelled to outline a theory-based parenting course to help parents / child-care givers access accurate child-rearing information and top-up their parenting tool box with additional positive discipline skills.
Positive discipline is built on the idea that children / adolescents are naturally hardwired to seek praise and acknowledgment as well as loving guidance, support and understanding from adults. By using positive discipline, adults can regenerate their relationships with children / adolescents and teach them to trust and value their choices while feeling good about whom they are instead of how to avoid punishment or succumb to peer pressure.
