Another group of persons will be trained early next year, when the fourth Training of Trainers course of the Parent Education and Support Programme is hosted by the Ministry of Family, Culture, Sports and Youth.

Classes will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m., beginning January 10, and running until April 25. The training will be conducted in the main conference room of the Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development, Elsie Payne Complex, Constitution Road, St. Michael.??

Persons interested in being trained should immediately contact the Ministry of Family at telephone numbers 430-2915 or 430-2917. Community, sports and youth groups, as well as church members are also encouraged to register for the training.

This programme is aimed at developing a cadre of well trained and competent individuals who will deliver training to parents and prospective parents, so as to ensure they are equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to have healthy relationships with their children.

At the end, participants should be able to identify and utilise the positive parenting traits they have learnt in an effort to enhance the quality of family life across the island.??????

The five modules to be taught during the session are: Parenting, Coping and Managing, Finding Self, Seeking Help and Action Planning. Over 50 people have already been trained and they are delivering a series of seminars in the community on Positive Parenting Skills.??
