None of the activities in the Art of Parenting program would have as much positive impact on families as they do if parents did not also learn how to communicate more effectively with their children and with each other.
By learning how to integrate proven communication approaches such as active listening, effective self-disclosure and shared problem solving and by walking through real-life cases, parents learn completely new and powerful ways of communication. They learn how to listen and understand their children better and work with them to co-develop solutions to problems. They also learn how to set boundaries with their children, and with others, and how this can help greatly improve their interpersonal relationships. Parents find that their relationships with their children and others can be transformed by using the various approaches learned through the Art of Parenting program!
