Hello I'm Dr. Deborah Wheeler. I'm the Vice President of Academic Affairs at Argosy University on the Salt Lake City Campus. I'm also a Clinical Psychologist and today's topic is how to teach parenting classes. When I was younger I taught some parenting classes for a local community college district and we included both the children and the parents in the class. I found this to be a very effective way to teach parenting classes because you have the children there playing with the toys and you also have the parents who can observe their children and interact with their children as they learn parenting skills. One of the best ways to do that is to have one of the parents take the children, they can go outside and play or be engaged in activity while you meet with the parents individually for a lesson. So you can provide them with the materials and information about parenting while the children are playing. You then switch and make sure the other sets of parents were with the kids then get the time in for their class times. This is an effective way to teach parenting classes because you have the opportunity for both to engage ultimately. Of course you want to make it fun for the kids so plan good activities that the children will enjoy that you can all interact with together. Make it a fun experience for both the parents and the children and you'll have successful parenting classes.
