School leaders, wellbeing coordinators, psychologists, counsellors, and teachers who present parent education sessions
Sessions are designed to be presented to groups of parents of any size and take between 60 – 90 minutes to present.
The topics and content covered in Investing in Parents fall into three categories: positive parents, effective parents, and positive children. The content included in each parent session is based on an extensive study of what international research in the fields of parenting, child development, and related fields has discovered about ways that parents socialise and influence their achievement and wellbeing.
Presented to groups of parents during the day or after school, the sessions generally consist of a mini-lecture presentation, discussion, and activities. We have also found that parents can also perform in the role of the leader in taking responsibility for the delivery of the sessions. In consultation with their parent community, schools can select one or more sessions to offer parents throughout the school year.
