LEADERSHIP PARENTING CFS PROGRAMMINING
Leadership Parenting 2-day sessions are designed for participants who need and are willing to do the work to restore and strengthen their natural leadership roles as parents and grandparents.
Survivors of historical and inter-/cross-generational traumas, including the Sixties Scoop and Residential Schools, will explore and understand how these traumas have an impact on their current life and present situation – and how they can have an impact on the future generations of Indigenous children.
These courses may emphasize:
- Developing one’s own unique steps to become a natural and effective parent or grandparent;
- Relating to, communicating and connecting with family members, especially children, in a health way;
- Leading a healthy and productive life and family; and,
- Creating a safe home environment by understanding and learning safety from within the self to make safety more real in their own life.
