Upcoming Parents Workshops offered online from The Science of Parenting

ORANGE CITY, Iowa – A study by Zero to Three (2016) found that parents need and want information and support. Eighty percent of parents work to be better parents, and 69 percent of parents say that if they knew more parenting strategies, they would use them. Despite this motivation, however, nearly half of parents say they don’t get the support they need during times of stress.
Team Science of Parenting from Iowa State University has planned online workshops to help parents learn strategies to use. The three workshops are Positive Discipline, Age of children and parenting stages, and Understanding temperament.
These three workshops all aim to share information from research and adapted to the reality of each family. The first workshop addresses the common question of “how can I practice positive discipline and manage my child’s behavior?” “. The second helps parents and caregivers better understand child development, and the third is about temperament – ​​or the unique traits we all have and how to deal with them.
Positive Discipline is scheduled online Tuesday, April 26, from noon to 1 p.m. Register online at https://go.iastate.edu/HGH3H4 before April 22. This class is approved for foster parent credit hours.
The age of children and parental steps will be online Tuesday, May 3, noon to 13 pm. Register before April 29 at https://go.iastate.edu/R7G1FO.
Understanding Temperament will be held online on Tuesday, May 10, from noon to 1:00 p.m. Register at https://go.iastate.edu/K7RA8I before May 6.
These workshops are free for attendees, but please register in advance to receive the course link and materials.
