This parenting class / support group is for parents struggling with an addiction and have dealt with or are currently dealing with the child welfare system. 

 

This parenting class is based on a Rise book titled Breaking a Painful Pattern.  Rise is an organization in New York that works with parents who have dealt with the child welfare system.  Rise helps parents write their own stories of the struggle. 

 

The book Breaking a Painful Pattern includes stories written by parents who struggled with an addiction and have dealt with the child welfare system. 

 

During each class we read three stories.  After each story, we discuss the story as a group.  Then the group time to answer the “my reflections” questions and write in their “my recovery journal”. 

Sample Stories/Themes:

Getting through it – Self care, setting goals

One Step at a Time – Rules for your home, guidelines

Building a Foundation – Planning ahead, problem solving

Eat, Play, Love –The power of playing with your child

A Way out of No Way – How do we connect with our children, how do we reach our children who rebel our ideas

The Center on the Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning (CSEFEL) developed this curriculum as a six week parenting course.  This parenting course discusses different topics that help promote positive behavior in children.  It also gives ideas of different parenting strategies to use that will promote the child’s social and emotional development.

 

The course is broken up between six sessions.  Each participant will receive a workbook that they will use for each session and that they may keep.  In the workbook there are activities that the participants will do in class and at home.  After session one,the instructor will begin each class with a group discussion of how the week went, if they were able to try the at home exercises with their children, and if they worked or not.

Session 1: Making a Connection    

            Discuss relationships with our kids, spending quality time, positive comments and encouragement. 

 

Session 2: Making it happen

            Discuss play as a powerful parenting practice, supporting the development of friendship skills, and encouraging positive behavior.

 

Session 3: Why do they do what they do?

            Discuss determining the meaning of behavior, making expectations clear, developing and teaching household rules.

 

Session 4: Teach me what to do!

           Discuss the importance of teaching emotional vocabulary, managing anger and handling disappointment, and problem solving skills.

 

Session 5: Facing the Challenge

         Discuss strategies to promote positive behavior in kids.

 

Session 6:  Review of Class
