About Parent Workshops

We offer workshops for parents about the following topics. These workshops are interactive with many discussions, role-plays and activities. They help parents to construct knowledge based on their prior experiences with their children. The workshops duration range from one to three hours and can be customized based on your school’s or organization’s needs.

Introductory parenting session (2 hour session)

In this session, as parents, we’ll first explore what we want for our children and whether these qualities and skills that we want for them are enough for them to lead happy and successful lives as adults.
Through role-plays and discussions, we’ll then explore different parenting styles that we as parents embody and how, many of them conflict with nurturing the qualities and skills that we want for our children. We’ll then go on to talk about how a democratic parenting style is necessary so that our children can lead happy and successful lives as adults, and how we can get there.

Advanced parenting Sessions (2 - 3 hour sessions)

In these advanced parenting sessions, we’ll explore various democratic parenting actions that we can take during conflict situations that we face with our children. Each of these actions will be explored using role-plays or discussions. The 2 hour long “Introductory parenting session” is a pre-requisite for this workshop.

Developing the Love for Reading in children (2 hour session)

Is learning to read more important or loving reading more important? How do we work with children to develop the love for reading? How do we choose books for children that develops the love for reading and transitions them to being independent readers? These are some of the questions that we’ll explore in this session.

Nurturing Creativity in Children (2 – 3 hour sessions)

Creative thinking is extremely important to nurture in our children as living in this complex world requires new ways of thinking and problem solving. Through hands-on Lego projects that parents will do in this workshop, we’ll explore the conditions for nurturing creativity in a child and how parents can go about it at home.
