Parenting Piece-by-Piece is a series of eight parenting education sessions designed for use with parents who have been mandated or encouraged to attend parenting training due to risk of child abuse and/or neglect.
The current curriculum also includes guidelines for adapting the program for use with incarcerated parents or with the caregivers of children whose parents have lost custody.
- normal child development
- communication with adults and children
- stress management
- dealing with conflict and anger
- use of community resources
Optional sessions address attachment and parenting or co-parenting from a distance.
Curriculum handouts are also available in Spanish.
Each session outline includes objectives, a list of required materials, background references, detailed activity descriptions, and suggestions for take-home activities that will help parents expand on lesson content and experiences.
